Rotis and parathas are an inseparable part of the quintessential indian meal! here is one with a difference – whole wheat parathas that are stuffed with a mixture of tofu and green peas. Healthy to the core, this indian bread is absolutely delicious and filling. Parathas are usually made with maida, but this healthier version is made with fibrous, nutrient-rich whole wheat flour. I have used yeast to soften the parathas and to bring about the same texture as in the maida version. Yeast needs to be handled smartly, else it will back-fire. So, follow the method correctly and use just warm water; if too hot, the yeast will not leaven. Yeast requires sugar to grow, so i have added a little bit. You can have these parathas plain or with a stuffing of your choice…feel free to experiment.

Ingredients


To Be Mixed Into A Stuffing
1/2 cup crumbled tofu (bean curd/soya paneer)
1/4 boiled green peas , lightly crushed
1/4 cup finely chopped coriander (dhania)
1/4 cup finely chopped mint leaves (phudina)
2 tsp finely chopped green chillies
salt to taste

Other Ingredients
1 tsp (5 grams) fresh yeast , crumbled
a pinch sugar
1 cup whole wheat flour (gehun ka atta)
salt to taste
whole wheat flour (gehun ka atta) for rolling
2 1/2 tsp oil for cooking

Method
  1. Combine the yeast, sugar and 2 tbsp of lukewarm water together in a bowl and mix well till the yeast dissolves. Keep aside for 10 minutes or until the yeast begins to ferment.
  2. Add the wheat flour and salt, mix well and knead into a soft dough using water as required.
  3. Cover the dough with a wet muslin cloth and keep aside till it doubles in volume (approx. 20 minutes).
  4. Press the dough lightly to remove the air and divide it into 5 equal portions. Keep aside.
  5. Divide the stuffing into 5 equal portions and roll out one portion of dough into a 100 mm. (4”) diameter circle using a little flour for rolling.
  6. Place one portion of the stuffing in the centre and fold the edges of the dough over the stuffing to make a square.
  7. Press it lightly to seal the stuffing, flatten the dough and roll out again into a square of 125 mm. (5") using a little flour for rolling.
  8. Cook on a non-stick pan, using ½ tsp of oil, till both sides are golden brown in colour.
  9. Repeat with the remaining dough and stuffing to make 4 more parathas.
  10. Serve hot.

Handy tips:

  1. You can use ½ tsp of dried yeast dissolved in lukewarm water if fresh yeast is not available.
  2. If the dough is fermenting quickly, refrigerate it till you use.
