Tofu - Alu Paratha

Print Friendly and PDF

It is very healthy to include Tofu(Soya Paneer) in our regular diet .Tofu has very little flavor or smell on its own, so it can be used either in savory or sweet dishes, and is often seasoned or marinated to suit the dish.It is low in calories and contains a relatively large amount of Iron and contains little fat.Though you can substitute paneer with tofu in our dishes there will be a compromise in taste,but it is so healthy.Here comes a simple paratha made up of Tofu.
Ingredients:


For the Dough
:

1 Cup Wheat flour
1/2 tsp Salt

Water

1/2 tsp Oil


For the Filling:
1 Cup grated Firm Tofu
1 Cup boiled and grated Alu

1/2 Cup grated Carrot

1/2 cup finely chopped coriander

1 tsp Coriander powder

1/2 tsp Jeera powder

1/2 tsp Garam masala
1/2 tsp Amchur powder

1 tsp green chilli paste

Salt

Method:
  • Make a smooth and elastic dough out of wheat flour,salt and water and leave it aside for 30-45 mins.Smear the hands with oil and give a nice massage until it forms a nice and smooth dough.
  • Mix well all the ingredients required for the filling.
  • Take a small portion of dough and roll it into a 3" dia round using wheat flour and place the stuffing in between and gently close it from all the edges and roll it again to a 6" dia paratha(roll it bit thicker than the regular roti's) and fry it on tawa on both sides by smearing it with Oil/ghee.
Serve it hot with Mirch ka Achaar and cool Cucumber Raitha.



Cucumber Raitha:

Ingredients:1 Cup Beaten Curd
3/4 Cup grated cucumber
1/2 cup finely chopped Onion
1/2 tsp Sugar
1/2 tsp green chilli paste
1/2 tsp chaat masala
2 tbsp chopped coriander
Salt to taste

Method:
  • Beat the curd well with sugar,salt and chaat masala.
  • Add grated cucumber,onion,green chilli paste,coriander and mix well.
  • Chill for half an hour.
Serve it cold with Hot Hot Paratha's.

I make stuffed tofu parathas too and blogged about them a long time back, but adding potatoes is a good idea, especially since the tofu sometimes tends to be too watery no matter how much you drain it. They look delicious.
