My family loves chapatti and parathas more than rice. I try to make it even more special adding some hidden veggies or greens  to taste a bit different than a usual one. So here is one special parathas from Tomatoes. A very healthy variation to the usual parathas. Its spicy, tangy and flavourful.


2 Cup Wheat flour.

2 Medium Size Tomatoes.(ripe)

1 tbsp Red chilly pd (kashmiri pd)

1 tsp Grated Ginger.

1/2 Jeera pd.

1/2 tsp Ajwain.

1 tsp Ghee.

1 tsp Oil.

Salt to taste.

Water as needed.


Heat oil in a kadai. Add roughly chopped tomato followed by salt and stir till it becomes mushy. Add red chilly powder, jeera pd and mix well. Keep it aside. Now take a big vessel, Drop in wheat flour, grated ginger, tomato mixture, ajwain, ghee and knead it a soft dough adding adequate amount of water. Then divide the dough into small balls and roll out little thicker parathas. Heat pan, drizzle some oil or ghee and cook these parathas on both the sides.
