Whenever I feel lazy to make curries for chappati, I end up making these delicious parathas. All I want is only curd or a pickle for a touch. Its very quick and easy to prepare and healthy too as its mixed up with grated cabbage. The addition of Indian spices makes this paratha tastes extra good. You can add carrots too instead of cabbage. It tastes equally good. Its perfect when you pack them when you plan for picnics or on your train journey too :)


1 Cup Wheat flour

1/4 Grated Cabbage.

1 tbsp Grated Ginger

Ajwain just to Sprinkle.

1 tsp of Cumin pd.

1/2 tsp Haldi pd.

1 tsp Chilly pd.

1 tsp Coriander pd.

2 tsp Coriander leaves chopped.

Salt to taste.

Little Oil or ghee for mixing and for brushing.

Water as needed.

In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients except water. Using your fingertips, mix it thoroughly. Add little water at a time and start kneading the dough. Dough must be soft just as regular chappathi dough. Let it rest for about 15 min. Later divide the dough into equal portions and roll out each into a thin chappati like. Heat tawa and cook the paratha on both the sides in low flame. Brush with ghee or oil if needed.

Hurray !!!!! Just like my 100th and 200th post, I knew I would jump into my 300th post some or the other day and today is that special day :) I am really very happy and excited that I have done something which I owned as a passion. I am extremely thankful for my loving family which is a sole reason and my dear friends specially my facebook pals ;) who have supported and motivated me with there likes and encouraging comments. For that I am gratefully Thank you :) Looking forward for the same together over the upcoming year.

On this wonderful day, I wanted to post and present a mini sweet delight which looks quite colourful and at the same time attractive, tempting and heavenly. Its fully loaded with fruits and nuts and every one's favourite ice creams. In this dish, there's no specific measurement as you can add more or less depending to your taste buds.

Take a serving glass. Add the first layer of strawberry pudding or jelly whatever you like. Then top them with fruits and dry fruits. ( I used bananas, apple, cherry and green grapes). Above that I have kept chocolate sponge cake. In between the layers, try to drop in chocolate sauce and strawberry sauce to get a royal look ;) Upon that a scoop of vanilla ice cream or any other flavour. Lastly garnish with fresh fruits and nuts, and drizzle both the sauces or with your favourite toppings.
Tempting colourful delight is ready to serve :)
