What is Pudina Paratha?

As the name suggests pudina paratha is a paratha, i.e. shallow fried Indian flatbread, which bursts with the flavors of mint. Further it is a lachha paratha recipe too. The paratha has crisp and prominent layers which makes it an absolute delight. Parathas can be a part of your dinner recipes or lunch recipes. Just team it up with your favorite gravy or dal and you are good to go. And if you are looking for simple dinner recipes just serve it with chilled yogurt.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Pudina Paratha recipe

I have already shared on the blog the recipe for perfect dough for paratha. It is essential for any paratha recipe. Especially lachha parathas call for perfect dough otherwise proper lachha is not formed. Paratha recipe is the most common Indian recipe for breads after chapati. The thing about paratha recipes is that these can be customised in so many ways. Let’s have a look at the ingredients required for pudina paratha recipe:

Pudina/Mint: Pudina recipes are so loved by one and all in the family. Especially during hot summers I like to use mint in many ways because of its cooling properties. Pudina paratha is not my favorite pudina recipe as I don’t like cooking this green. But when paired with spicy gravy it makes a combination to go for! Further I have used fresh mint. You can try this recipe with dry mint too.

Dough for paratha: The best part about my lachha paratha recipe is that only wheat flour has been used still one can get gorgeous lachha.

Rice Flour + ghee: No compromise here! This is the secret ingredient for this recipe. The kind of lachha one can get using rice flour is not possible by using whole wheat flour. Likewise, if the oil is used instead of ghee, the lachha won’t be that good.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
