Mixed Sprouts Paratha- Indian Flat Bread
I wanted to make another attempt of making something innovative with sprouts. Without thinking much I planned to make parathas using sprouts. I remembered mom used to make dal paratha for me and I knew making it with sprouts will be nice and interesting. I added curry leaves, green chillies, garlic and ginger to enhance the taste and to let it ooze out with flavors.
The parathas turned out to be very soft and massledar. You don’t even need any pickle or chutney to enjoy with it. It itself is enough to for your taste buds to dance. All you ladies must try this recipe and fulfill the nutritional needs of your family.

Wash sprouts 2-3 times and strain water.
In a food processor pulse ginger, garlic, onion, sprouts, curry leaves, green chilles to make a coarse paste.
Finally add the above mixture with flour, salt, asafoetida, ½ tablespoon oil and turmeric. Mix well.
Take little water and knead to form a soft dough. Let it rest for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, divide dough into equal parts and give them a round shape of ball. Take 1/2 cup dry wheat flour in a plate for dusting. Take one dough ball, flatten it like Pattie and dust dry wheat flour over it. Roll out the paratha.
Place it on a hot tava/griddle and cook over medium flame. When tiny bubbles starts to rise on the surface, flip it and reduce the flame to low.
Spread 1/4 tsp oil around edges and spread over the paratha. Flip it again and spread 1/4 tsp oil around over it. Press it with spatula and let it cook over medium flame. Cook until golden brown spots appear on both sides. Follow the same process for remaining dough balls.
For more healthy option, you can omit the use oil, simply use a napkin to roast the paratha.
I like it spicy please adjust the amount of green chilly as per your taste.
If you don't have food processor just use the mixer to grind. Remember not to over blend it- you need coarse paste.
