The "healthy" paratha !

The name is rather unbelievable, right? But that's the way it is! The stuffing for this paratha is actually healthy, so, people who are worried about their weight and their waist line, don't hesitate....

you will need:
(for the filling)
3 to 4 tablespoons of Sattoo
1 green chilly (finely chopped)
a spoonful of salt
2 spoonfuls of sugar
a pinch of asfoetida (hing) (optional)
lukewarm water

(for the dough)
5 to 6 cups of flour
a pinch of salt
a teaspoon of oil (sunflower)
oil for frying

howto do it:
Mix the ingredients for the filling, knead it into a soft dough.
In a separate bowl, knead the flour
Make small balls with the flour dough.
Place a small amount of the filling inside each ball and roll it to resemble rotis.
Lightly coat the dough with some more flour.
Heat the tawa, place the paratha on it, lightly tossing it upside down every 7 to 8 seconds.
Once it changes color, lightly drizzle very little oil (optional) on the outer circumference of the paratha.
Do you have pickles at home?
Otherwise a generous blob of tomato ketchup would do just fine.

p.s. wrap it in a foil and you can save it for a week!
