Most of you know what is paratha.  It is a flat stuffed bread stuffed with vegetables and you can use any vegetable  and the most common being the “Potato”.  But Raddish, Cauliflower, Methi leaves, and even Toffu make great and arguably healthier parathas than the potato fillings.  Today i have decided to make Mushroom filling paratha.

Until recently Mushroom was never common in the indian cooking.  A few years later button mushrooms were available in plastic covers in even in grocery stores.  Now a days even for the  vegetarians these mushrooms are favorites because of the unique flavor and is the staple of indian cuisine.

I love Mushrooms and i knew that these parathas would turn out to be yummy and they did.  Mushrooms tend to give away a lot of moisture and you need to remove every trace of moisture to make a quality paratha.  Here is my version of the recipe..

What you need to have:

1. Grated Mushroom – 2 cups

2. Onion chopped – 1cup

3. Garlic minced – 1 teaspoon

4. Ginger grated – 1/2 teaspoon

5. Green chili grated – 1 teaspoon

6. Cilantro chopped – 2 teaspoons

7. Dry mango powder – 1/2 teaspoon

8. Roasted cumin powder – 1/2 teaspoon

9. Turmeric powder – 1/2 teaspoon

10. Besan powder – 1 tablespoon

11. Salt- as per taste

12. Cooking oil – 1 TablespoonDSCN0167                                                                     Ingredients of stuffing

Ingredients of the outer dough

1. Wheat atta – 1 and 1/2 cups

Good to remember:

1. Mushroom should be fresh  for better taste.

2. The stuffing should be perfect to stuff it and then roll it as well.

3. One can even relish it with curds and chili pickle.

4. The outer dough also should be soft to roll it perfect.
