Chilli Paratha

Thank you Dear friends for all the lovely wishes on my earlier two posts. I'm here with my family's favourite dish "Chilli Paratha". On Saturday evening, when I asked my husband what he wanted for dinner, he said "Chilli paratha". I said "Yes" immediately, because I had store bought frozen paratha pack. If you have frozen parathas or leftover parathas then you can make this in very less time otherwise, this is bit time consuming job.

Ingredients :

1. Frozen Paratha - 6 (Cut in to pieces)
2. Tomato Puree - 1 Cup
3. Onion - 1 No (Chopped Finely)
4. Bell Pepper - 1 (Cut in to pieces)
5. Green Chilly - 2 (Finely Cut) (Optional)
6. Chilly Powder - 1 tsp (Add more or less depending on your taste)
7. Garam Masala - 1.5 tsp
8. Coriander Powder - 1/2 tsp
9. Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 tsp
10. Cumin - 1 tsp
11. Oil - For Deep frying the cut parotas
12. Lemon Juice - 2 tsp
13. Coriander - Small qty

Procedure :

1. Cook the frozen paratha as per the instruction. Then cut the paratha in to pieces.



2. Heat oil and fry the cut pieces till crispy and Keep aside.

3. Now, in a pan add 4 tsp of oil, then cumin and then ginger-garlic paste. Fry till raw smell goes. 4. Then add onion,chilly and Bell pepper. Fry till the onion turns golden brown.

5. Add the tomato puree, chilly powder and garam masala. Cook for about 15-20 minutes in medium heat.

6. Then, add the cut parotas and mix them well. Add the lemon juice.

7. Garnish with coriander.




8. Serve hot with onion Raitha.



Note: If you are so diet conscious, then you can avoid the deep frying step. That won't change the taste much.
