Rajgira Paratha

Shallow fried flatbread prepared using amaranth flour is Rajgira Paratha. Amaranth flour is gluten-free. The same is combined with boiled and mashed potatoes along with coriander leaves and a few spices to make this gluten-free bread called Rajgira ka Paratha. Generally, amaranth flour or Rajgira ka atta is consumed during fasting. But I love to make Rajgira paratha for our regular breakfasts too, on the days I can serve these hot. Because the paratha tastes the best when served hot. Since amaranth flour is gluten-free, it is a bit difficult to roll this paratha. However, I have shared an easy way to do the same. Rajgira paratha can be served with aloo ki sabji and yogurt as a part of the fasting meal. Or the same can be served as breakfast on regular days. This blog has the Rajgira Paratha recipe with step by step pictures.

Rajgira Paratha Recipe – Ingredients:

Amaranth Flour (Rajgira ka Atta): Rajgira flour is commonly available at the grocers. Especially during the fasting days, the shops are loaded with stuff that can be consumed during fasts which include flour such as kuttu ka atta, singhade ka atta, Rajgira ka atta and so on. Make sure that the flour that you sue is fresh otherwise the paratha won’t taste good.

Boiled and mashed potatoes: Potatoes give binding to the dough of Rajgira ka paratha. The quantity of potatoes depends upon the quality of potatoes used, the moisture content therein and so on.

Coriander leaves: This adds lot of freshness to the parathas. You can also add green chilies for some kick.

Spices: Certainly if making Rajgira paratha during fasts use rock salt and not the regular one. Other than salt, black pepper powder has been used. I do not use red chili powder and therefore have skipped the same. You can add it if you like it and eat it during fasts.

Ghee: I like to use ghee to make these parathas. You can use oil but ghee definitely gives much better flavor.

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!.
