Aloo Stuffed Bajra Paratha

I always try to incorporate millets in my diet. They are healthy and nutritious  So in today's recipe i have used bajra flour (pearl millet flour/ Kambu maavu in tamil) along with whole wheat flour and made stuffed parathas. I have used potatoes for the stuffing, instead you can use radish, broccoli etc.  as you wish. Serve this paratha with onion raitha or with your favorite gravy.
Aloo Stuffed Bajra Paratha

Makes 12 medium sized parathas
  • 1/2 cup of Bajra Flour
  • 1 1/2 cups of Wheat Flour
  • Water to knead dough
  • Salt to taste
For the Filling
  • 2 Potatoes, cooked and mashed
  • 1 Onion, medium sized, finely chopped
  • 1 Green Chilly, finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp Red Chilly Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Cumin powder
  • Few Coriander leaves, finely chopped
  • Salt to taste
  1. In a bowl mix all the ingredients for the stuffing and keep aside.
  2. Mix the Bajra flour, wheat flour and salt in an another bowl. Add the water gradually and knead into a soft dough. Cover and keep aside for 15 Min's.
  3. Flatten a ball of dough and roll it. Place small portion(say lemon sized) of the stuffing at the center, bring the edges towards the center and roll the dough gently by dusting the flour.
  4. Heat the tawa, place the paratha, grease some oil and cook on both sides. Repeat with the remaining dough.Serve with your favourite gravy, raitha etc....
