BM #92 Day 2 - 

Boondi Paratha is a very unique paratha which is gaining popularity. Boondi is gram flour batter poured through a special perforated ladle into hot oil into tiny droplets which are then fried golden brown. The paratha is filled with soaked boondi and spices.

This recipe was inspired by Preeti of Simply Tadka and a few more online resources.

We loved this paratha and the beauty of it was it was spicy enough to just enjoy with some carrot-cucumber raitha.

I used store bought boondi but making it ahead at home is a great idea too.

Recipe Inspiration - here
Ingredients -

Wheat Flour 1 1/2 cups
Water as needed to knead the flour
Oil 1 tsp
Salt as needed
For the Filling - 
Boondi 1/2 cup
Green chilies finely chopped 2-3
Coriander leaves finely chopped 2 Tbsp
Salt, Chaat Masala, Garam Masala as needed

Method Of Preparation -

To Prepare the Filling - 
Soak boondi in 1 cup of water for 10-15 minutes.

Squeeze out the water from the boondi and set aside the boondi. [This is to soften the boondi.]

In the softened boondi, add finely chopped green chilies, coriander leaves, salt, chaat masala and garam masala. Mix well and set aside.

To make the Paratha - 
Knead the chapati dough with the whole wheat flour, oil and salt with as much water as needed. Keep it covered for about 10-15 min.

Make 5-6 equal portions of the dough. 

Roll out small rotis, fill in a spoonful of the boondi mixture, close the edges and roll out the parathas taking care that the mixture doesn't fall out. 

Shallow fry on a griddle/tawa until both the sides are done spraying as much oil as needed. Repeat the procedure for all the parathas.

Enjoy with Yogurt or any gravy curries.
