Rajma Paratha Recipe / Kidney Beans Paratha Recipe - Indian Flatbread Using Red Kidney Beans


images for Rajma Paratha Recipe / Kidney Beans Paratha Recipe - Indian Flatbread Using Red Kidney Beans
Rajma Paratha
Filling ingredients
Cooked & mashed rajma/kidney beans-1 cup
( make sure you have removed excess water from the beans)
Grated ginger-1/2 tsp
Chopped green chillies-2
Chopped coriander leaves-1 tsp
Salt to taste
Crushed kastoori methi -1 tsp
Roasted & powdered jeera/cumin powder-1/2 tsp
Outer dough
Wheat flour-2 cups
Salt to taste
Water-required amount for making a dough
(Make a soft dough with flour,salt & water.Knead it well & rest it for 5 minutes covered)
Method
Take a bowl add all the stuffing ingredients,mix everything well.
Make small lemon size balls & keep it aside
Divide the dough into lime size balls.Take a ball of dough shape it like a cup,keep the filling inside.
Close & seal it well & roll it out slowly into thick parathas,make sure the filling doesn't come out.
Cook it on tawa/griddle in medium flame till brown on both sides by brushing oil.
Serve it hot with raita or any gravy .

Note:
a) Once the filling is sealed well,flatten it & prick it once with a fork on top.By this the air inside the filling will release & while rolling out your filling will not come out.I usually follow this method for any stuffed paratha. Usually stuffed parathas are rolled thicker
b) Make sure there is no water in rajma while grinding,filling should be dry.
c) Gently roll the parathas & dust with flour if needed.
d) Before grinding drain out the water completely,the stuffing should be dry.If your stuffing has water,fry a bit in a kadai to remove excess water.
