1.5 tsp Red Chilli Powder
1 tsp Dhaniya Powder
1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
1 tsp coarsely powder Cumin seeds or Jeera
1 cup Fresh Mint Leaves – Washed and chopped fine
1 Medium Onion – Chopped Fine
Salt to taste

DSC_00032. Add the chopped mint and chopped onions.

DSC_00043. Mix well. Mix into a soft pliable dough by adding water little at a time. The onions and salt combined will leave some water, so ensure you add just enough water as needed while mixing. If the dough seems too soft add some dry whole wheat flour/atta.Mix well and keep aside.

DSC_00074. Roll into Paratas / Rotis. You may fold and roll out into layered Paratas to make the Paratas layered and soft. Heat a griddle/tava, roast the Paratas by spreading little oil on both sides until golden brown. Serve with a Curry as desired. You can also serve with curds/plain yogurt and a pickle.

Tomato Onion Curry

Standard

In an effort to post more frequently, I am dipping into my treasure of pictures to post on a simple dish from Karnataka – Tomato Onion Curry also called Tomato Onion Gojju. This recipe is quick, easy to make and great for days when you have no time to spend in the kitchen but equally delicious that is typically served with roti/chapatis.
