Ajwain Paratha

BM #69 Week 1 Day 1 -

After a hectic month of mega marathon, we are back to the regular blogging pace of 3 posts per week. This week I opted to post 3 flatbreads. The first one being this versatile and tummy friendly one. 

I understand that there are many versions of Ajwain paratha but this is the most popular one at home. I sometimes add chopped coriander leaves and/or ginger-garlic paste as well.

Ingredients - 

Wheat Flour 1 1/2 cups
Ajwain / Vaamu 2 tsp
Salt, Red Chili Powder as needed
Kasoori Methi, crushed 1 Tbsp
Green Chili Paste as needed
Warm Water as needed to knead a soft dough
Oil to shallow fry the parathas

Ajwain Paratha

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients except oil and water. Mix well.

Slowly add water as needed to knead into a soft dough. Cover and set aside for a few minutes.

Heat the griddle/tawa.

Pinch the dough into 7-8 equal parts and roll each of them into a thin circle (roti).

Gently place the dough circle on the hot griddle.

After bubbles appear, flip it, spray oil/ghee and after a few seconds, flip it and spray oil/ghee until both sides are uniformly cooked.

Cover in a paper lined box and continue with the rest of the dough.

Serve it with spiced yogurt or any other accompaniment of your choice.

  1. I had no idea these were called Ajwain paratha. Your stack of parathas looks very appetizing.

  2. Beautifully presented parathas. A simple yogurt dip would make it so yum..

  3. These are a common sight in Punjabi homes, though they fry the parathas with desi ghee !..GOOD ONE.

  4. Suma Gandlur Says:
  5. Flavorful and healthy stack of parathas.

  6. Priya Suresh Says:
  7. I love adding ajwain seeds in paratha, that stack of parathas looks prefect to enjoy with some spicy curries.

  8. Pavani Says:
  9. I've never added ajwain to rotis. Will have to try these out soon.

  10. As Vaishali told we love making this paratha everyday with ghee. Good one.
