Namak aur Ajwain Ka Parantha
Namak aur Ajwain Ka Parantha is one of the top contenders for comfort food for me. Even know on days, all I want is comfort of Namak aur Ajwain Ka Parantha dipped in adark chai along side some pickle. Or in summer with some aam ras. The post also has a video on how to roll it to get the perfect layers.
- 1 cup chapathi dough
- 2 tsp Oil/Ghee for each parantha
- 1/4 tsp Ajwain seeds (carom seeds) for each parantha
- 1/4 tsp red chilli powder for each parantha
- Salt to taste
Distribute the dough into 4 equal parts and make smooth round balls out of it
Roll the balls into a chapathi using dry flour
Spread half to one tsp ghee on the chapathi, sprinkle salt, chilli powder and ajwain seeds. Sprinkle some dry flour and fold in fan style as shown in the video above.
Roll again and fry on both sides with ghee or oil.
Repeat for rest of the dough and serve hot with tea and pickle
