So, presenting to you Phool Makhana Parathas or the Parathas with Puffed Lotus Seeds.
I have already written about the health benefits of Puffed Lotus Seeds. When Vaishali got me a huge bag of these seeds, I made sure to use them in various recipes.
This is a simple paratha/ flat bread recipe that is really soft and perfect for dinner/ breakfast or to pack for the kids lunch box.
Puffed lotus seeds- 1/2 cup
Whole wheat flour- 2 cups
Potato- 2 ,medium sized, boiled and peeled
Ajwain / Bishop's weed- 1/2 teaspoon
Coriander leaves- 2 tablespoons
Salt to taste
Oil- 1 tablespoon,divided
Roast the puffed lotus seeds in 1/2 teaspoon oil till crunchy. Let it cool and powder. Keep aside.
In a large bowl, take the flour, ajwain,salt, powdered lotus seeds, coriander leaves and mix well. Add the boiled potato and mix again.Add water little by little and knead to a smooth dough. In the final stages of kneading, add the remaining oil and knead for 5 minutes.
Let it rest for 10 minutes. In the meantime heat a griddle / tawa. Pinch out a golf ball sized portion of the dough and roll out into parathas on a flour-dusted surface.Cook the paratha on the griddle, drizzling oil if needed[I usually don't use oil to cook the parathas],till you get brown spots on either side.
Remove from griddle and serve with a side dish of your choice.
