Tiranga Paratha....!!!!

        Tiranga Paratha....Paying A Special Patriotic Homage to all the Freedom Fighters of India...!!!









Being  Indian,we used to celebrate our Independence Day,Republic Day or any other National days in different styles and emotions.But mostly,we ,the home-makers used to spend these days in the usual way,inside the kitchen. Instead of being restricted within the daily meals, I think, we could do something new and in this way we could also pay a homage to our country and our Freedom Fighters,The Real heroes. I think in this way I could spread the feelings, emotions and importance of these days to my little daughter as well.


Anyway,I should come to the point now.Tiranga Paratha is a very simple,easy and interesting preparation and yes,it's really good to taste also.


Ingredients:

  • Frozen Peas:1/2 cup(fresh peas will also work perfectly)
  • Carrot : 1 large
  • Salt:As per Taste
  • Dry Roasted Cumin Powder:2 table spoon
  • Chilli Powder: 1/2 tsp
  • Sugar:A pinch
  • White Oil
  • Flour(Maida)

Process:







  • At first using a mixer blender make a soft paste of the peas.
  • Peel off and chop the carrot and same as above, make its paste too.
  • Put a pan in the oven,add little white oil and add the carrot paste first.
  • Add 1tsp of dry roasted cumin powder,a pinch of chilli powder and salt and a pinch of sugar and mix the carrot paste very well with all the spices.
  • In the medium flame stir it well,until the paste become tight.
  • Keep it aside.
  • Now in the same pan add little more oil and the peas paste.
  • In the similar way add 1 tsp of dry roasted cumin powder,a pinch of chilli powder and little salt and sugar according to your taste.
  • In the similar way,when the paste becomes tight(dont make it too hard) remove it from oven and keep it aside.
  • Keep the both paste in two different bowls.

























  • Now take three different medium sized bowl.
  • Add 1/2 cup of flour in each of them.
  • Now in your first bowl add the carrot paste,1tsp white oil and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
  • Now make a soft dough with your hands.
  • Avoid making it too hard, a little water can also be added if required. Keep the saffron color dough aside.
  • Now in your second bowl of flour add the peas paste,1 tsp of white oil and 1/2 tsp of salt.
  • Make a soft dough which would be of green color and keep it aside.
  • While making the green dough also, a little amount of water can be added.
  • Now take your third bowl of flour, add the oil and the salt in the same way to make a soft white dough.
  • Three different coloured doughs are now ready.





 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

   

                        

 
                                  




  • Now take  rolling pin and board.
  • Take equal quantity of dough from each of the bowls and arrange them horizontally  as per the sequence of colours in our National Flag.
  • Use some dry flour to make it non-sticky and with the help of the rolling pin roll it and  give it a rectangular shape.
  • Using a knife cut it properly and give it a flag shape.
  • You can make a circle in the middle of it which represents the "Chakra" of our National Flag.
  • In this way,make few more parathas.
  • Use little white oil / butter / ghee and fry the parathas well.
  • Serve it with Achar,Dahi or any Sabji of your choice.
