BM #92 Day 9 - 

Imli in Hindi means Tamarind. This is a sweet, tangy and spicy version of a paratha. I took the easy route by using the store bought tamarind-date chutney for the sweet and tangy flavors. 

In a brainstorming session with my friend Pooja, she suggested I for imli and I took it from there. We loved this burst of flavors in the paratha and have made these a couple times so far.

Check out the recipe, I for Imli ka paratha while tomorrow's post is fine tuned.

Recipe Inspiration - Pooja
Ingredients - 

Wheat Flour 3/4 cup
Tamarind-Date Chutney 1-2 Tbsp (per taste)
Salt, Turmeric and Ajwain as needed
Green Chili, finely chopped 1 tsp
Ginger-Garlic Paste 1 tsp
Onions, finely chopped 2 Tbsp
Coriander leaves, chopped 2 Tbsp
Oil / Ghee for shallow frying

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients. Mix well.

Slowly add water as needed to knead into a soft dough. If the dough is rested, it might get soggy because of the onions and salt.

Pinch the dough into 5-6 equal parts and roll each of them into a thin circle (roti).

Heat the griddle/tawa.

Gently place the roti 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.
