Tri Colour Paratas - Tiranga Parata - Happy Independence Day

Indian National Flag colours are Orange, White and Green with a blue coloured chakra at the centre. I am dedicating this to the olympic athletes who made our nation proud. Narang Gagan, Vijay Kumar, Saina Nehwal, Mary Kom, Yogeshwar Dutt, Sushil Kumar and the countless others who fought the battle on our behalf. The Nation Salutes you!



Ingredients (Makes about 8 paratas)

For Orange colour
Wheat Flour 1/2 heaped cup
Carrots 2
Chilli Powder 1/2 tsp
Salt a little
Oil a few drops

Method of Preparation

1. Chop the carrots roughly. Grind in a mixie along with the chilli powder and salt.

2. Take flour in a bowl. Add the carrot mix and the oil to it. Mix well. Add enough water and make into a dough.

Careful about the water as there is very little dough and carrot also has a lot of moisture

For Green Colour
Wheat Flour 1/2 heaped cup
Spinach a handful
Green Chilli 1
Salt a little
Oil a few drops

Method of Preparation

1. Grind spinach in a mixie along with the green chilli and salt. Add a little water if need be.

2. Take flour in a bowl. Add the spinach mix and the oil to it. Mix well. Add enough water and make into a dough.

For White Colour
Wheat Flour 1/2 heaped cup
Salt a little
Oil a few drops

Method of Preparation

1. Take flour in a bowl. Add salt and the oil to it. Mix well. Add enough water and make into a dough.

Method of Preparation

1. The three colours of dough are ready.



2. Roll them into 3 logs and place them in a row. Join together slightly. Do not put too much pressure as we want to avoid them overlapping as much as possible.



3. Cut into 8-9 equal parts.



4. Now rolling time.... Dip in flour while rolling as you will for normal rotis. First roll from top to bottom (orange to green) to get the height that you are looking for.

5. Then turn and roll horizontally to get the required width.



6. Cook both sides in a pan and serve with side of your choice.



The taste does not change much from normal rotis. But the health factor is definitely high. Plus kids will love picking different sections with different colours :-) You can try the carrot and spinach rotis separately as well.
