Tofu is one food that I started eating only 4 years back . Back then, after reading a lot about its nutritional benefits and testimonies from foodies, I thought why not give it a try? The most convenient is making parathas with tofu stuffing as Tofu itself is tasteless. Let me tell you these parathas are very filling and healthy snack too. I often pack it as lunch item for my little one for school.
Needed for the dough
2 cups Whole wheat flour
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tbsp Oil
Water to knead the dough
For the Filling:
200 gms Tofu, grated
1 Onion, finely chopped
2 Green chilies, chopped
1/2 tsp Ginger, finely chopped
1 tsp Red chili powder
1/2 tsp Garam masala
Salt to taste (do keep in mind that I have added little salt in the dough as well)
2 tbsp fresh Coriander leaves, finely chopped
Oil for cooking
Take a big bowl and mix flour, salt and mix well. Add oil and water to knead the dough as you would do to make rotis. Cover and leave it for sometime to settle down.
To make the Filling:
In a large bowl crumble the tofu and add all the above ingredients under Filling. Mix thoroughly and keep aside the filling.
Assembling the paratha:
Now from the dough make two lime sized equal balls. Take a ball and flatten it on your palm and then by using a rolling pin roll out on a floured board to make a 5 inch disc.
Shift this to another plate and make another 5 inch disc with another set of ball. Spread 2-3 tsp of filling on one roti and then cover it with the other roti. Press down the edges to seal firmly. Dust some flour on it and roll out slightly.
Transfer the paratha on to the hot skillet / tawa. Cook for few minutes, flip in between, when brown spots appear drizzle with some oil. When both sides are done you may dab little butter on each paratha. Do the same with the rest of the dough. Serve hot with butter, pickle or with chilled curd.
