Makke ke parathe

Wish you all a very Happy Diwali. It looks so festive in Delhi and now I am heading for Indore tomorrow, more excited to go back home on Diwali after three years.
Sorry for being away for long. I bring you something very easy to make and very good for winters.

Take 5 cups  of maize flour (makke ka atta)
Finely chopped onions (1 1/2 cups or less as you prefer)
Chopped green chillies- 2 long ones
chopped coriander leaves- a bunch
Coriander powder- 2 tspn, garam masala- 1 tspn; salt to taste.

  • Mix all the ingredients and knead the dough with warm water. Don't keep it for long after kneading, it is to be made immediately after kneading.
  • Make ten to twelve balls of dough.
  • Roll each ball into round parathas. My mom in law can make it with hand but lesser experienced like me prefer to use polythene sheets to roll parathas. To go my way, take two 10"*10" square pieces of thick polythene sheet. Grease them with cooking oil on one side. Keep one ball of dough on the greased side of plastic sheet and cover it with another one with the greased side down on ball. Use a rolling pin to roll the paratha with soft hands. Remove one sheet on top and carefully place the paratha on a hot greased skillet or tawa. 
  • Turn sides when cooked oiling on both the sides with ghee or cooking oil.
  • Serve hot with Sarson ka saag or chutney.
