Mix veg paratha (Vegetable paratha)

By Swasthi on August 26, 2022, Comments, Jump to Recipe

Mix veg paratha made with whole wheat flour, mixed vegetables, spices & herbs. It is a healthy & Kids’ friendly breakfast recipe. These mix vegetable parathas taste delicious and are super soft. So they keep good for several hours when stored well. They can be eaten on their own or with a chutney or pickle.

I make these very often for my kids’ school box & sometimes for breakfast too. Each time I make with different veggies which lend different flavors to the paratha. These are very easy to make and the best part is the dough doesn’t need any resting time. Once the dough is ready they can be made right away.

This time I have used potato, carrot, peas and cauliflower which were left during the weekend. You can substitute with any veggies of your choice. Sometimes I also add crumbled paneer to make the dough.

Beetroot, broccoli, palak, beans, sweet potato, yam, cabbage & lauki are some of the other veggies which I use. Potato can be substituted with sweet potato or yam. All these 3 veggies make the mix veg paratha soft.

Just note that the taste of the parathas will depend on the veggies used. So do choose only the veggies you like.

Preparation

1. Steam or boil veggies as desired until soft. I do over a pressure cooker. It just takes around 5 to 7 mins to steam the veggies.

2. Begin to mash them using a masher. They don’t need to cool down, you can do it right away when they are still hot.

3. Make sure there are no bits and chunks of veggies. The veggies must be mashed to very smooth.

4. Add finely chopped leafy greens. I used methi and coriander leaves. Also add ginger garlic paste, garam masala, red chilli powder, salt and ajwain

5. Mix up well, taste it and check if there is enough salt. It must be moderately salty. If needed add more.

6. Add whole wheat flour.

7. Begin to mix without using any water. If it doesn’t come together to form the dough, then sprinkle some water or the vegetable stock and form the dough.

8. The dough must be soft and non sticky.

9. Divide the dough to 5 to 6 balls.

12. Heat a griddle or tawa. When hot enough, transfer the paratha to the tawa.

13. Flip it when you see tiny bubbles. Drizzle few drops of ghee or oil. Spread it all over the paratha.

14. Cook on both the sides until well cooked with golden to light brown spots on them. Place a kitchen cloth or tissue in a plate. Stack the vegetable parathas over it to keep them soft. Continue to make the rest of the parathas and fry them.

It came out really well! Thanks for the amazing recipe!!

Hi there! Can I prepare the dough a day before I cook it? Or should I cook it and reheat the next day? Thank you in advance.

Hi Swasthi, whenever I decide to try a new recipe, I check your website. I review your recipe thoroughly and adapt to your recipe / method. Your method is short and simple, quantities and ingredients are accurate. This is very important because working mums have very little time and energy. Thank you and do keep up the good work. Every recipe that I have tried / adapted from your website have been great.
