I went shopping with my neighbor S couple of weeks ago, she asked if I know where to buy good silken tofu, so I brought her to a Asian market, I was curious what she wanted the silken tofu for, she told me that she make tofu paratha and her kids loved it!
She send a few parathas to us later and my son A and I finished them all, they are very tasty and soft, not to mention high in protein!
So I wasted no time to asked for the recipe and made these parathas for NS over the weekends, he was also very impressed and had 6 parathas for his lunch!
Whoever created this parathas recipe is really a genius and whoever it might be, I say : " Thank you".
Ingredients: (yield 8-10 Parathas)
1/3 box (150 gm) of Silken Tofu
1/3 cup of chopped coriander leaves/Cilantro
1/4 cup of cubed tomato
1 1/2 - 2 cup Whole Wheat Flour (Atta)
1 tsp Ajwain (Caraway seeds)
1 tsp Sesame seeds Optional
1 tsp Ginger garlic paste
1 tbsp Ghee
Some more ghee for frying
1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
1/2 tsp Chili powder Optional
1/2 tsp Salt or to taste
1. Mashed the tofu and all ingredients but Whole wheat flour/Atta until mushy. You could do this with hand. I used my Stand mixer.
2. Add the whole flour in a few batches until the dough form a soft ball, it should take around slightly more than 1 1/2 cups of flour, if the dough didn't form a ball, add 1-2 tbsp of flour and knead further.
3. Let the dough rest for around 10 minutes, then divide the dough into small balls around the size of Ping Pong. Roll it into a round disk the size of a dessert plate, around 2 mm in thickness.
4. Heat up a cooking pan and add a little ghee, pan fry the flat bread until cooked at medium heat, turn once or twice in between to cook both the side until well cooked and several brown spots showing on each side of the bread.
Serve with dal or any types of vegetables/curries of your choice.
