Simple yet flavourful food to enjoy any day!!
My mother's style .....!! Yes this is not any authentic recipe but the kind of nostalgic food I grew up with..Being a South Indian and not often visits to restaurants, we her own versions of everything. And rice being the staple food in our house , chapatis used to be a weekly affair. So parathas were the occasional soul food which was enjoyed like a Michelin 3 star food . Once in 6 or 7 months mom used to make this and it was a treat for school lunch. Today I can totally see the reverse excitement when I make for my own kids. "Is this what I get for lunch today , huh ?? ". Small pleasures of life have been conveniently replaced by fast foods, pizzas and pastas which are supposed to be more cool !! Today's kids fail to understand how we can get excited with simple and cheap food . Somethings are best not explained and only enjoyed !!
makes 7-8 parathas
1 cup onions sliced thinly
1 cup chopped mint leaves
3-4 green chillies, finely chopped
5-6 medium sized potatoes boiled and peeled
2 tablespoons oil + for roasting
2 teaspoons of turmeric
1/2 lemon juice
for the dough
2 cups whole wheat flour
salt as per taste
green chillies give the extra punch to this. So don't replace with chilli powder if possible.
