Savory Carrot Poli (Paratha)
You will need
1 large Carrot, shredded
1/2 cup cilantro, diced
1 tsp. Ova or Ajwain (Carom seeds)
1 tsp. Cumin seeds
1 tsp. Serrano pepper, deseeded and minced
1 tsp. turmeric
3 cups whole wheat flour
Salt to taste
Heat a pan and saute the shredded carrot with a little water.
When almost done add cilantro and salt and mix together. Switch off heat and let it cool.
In a kneading bowl add the carrot mixture and all the other ingredients except the oil.
Using water prepare dough. Moisten your fingers with a little oil and knead the dough until soft.
Let it rest for 5-10 minutes. Divide the dough into lemon sized balls.
Roll out each ball of dough and cook on a hot griddle pan until both sides are browned. Add a few drops of oil while the paratha is cooking.
