Jelly crystal (i used strawberry flavour)

1 1/4 Cups cream.

1 Cup Boiled chilled milk.

3 tbsp Milkmaid. (add more or less)

2 1/2 tbsp Agar Agar strands.

Pinch of Vanilla essence

First start preparing the jelly according to the instruction given behind the pack. Chill till set. Cut into cubes and put them into mini bowl.
Soak agar agar in a bowl for 10 min. In a pan add milk, cream ,and milkmaid and just heat up for about 5 min under low flame. No need to boil the mixture. Add vanilla essence and allow the mixture. Meanwhile add the soaked agar agar mixture into a pan and boil till it dissolves and makes a clear mix without any lumps. Switch off and keep it aside. Now the room temperature of both agar agar mixture and milk mixture should be same. Now both mix together and whisk it well.

I love paratha's soo much and specially when it comes with greens. I normally grind palak and make chappati or puries. This is the somthing new I learnt from Raks kitchen which tastes fabulous. The main advantage of making parathas is that it goes well with simple curd or pickles. No need to think of side dish ;) Thank u soo much raks for sharing such attractive and delicious paratha.
