A healthy breakfast, lunch box or tiffin recipe.
1 cup seedless dates (khajur), soaked in milk for 1 hour,
Jaggery as per taste,
Milk as per requirement,
Wheat flour enough to knead dough and roll parathas,
Ghee for frying.
Grind together dates along with milk and jaggery to form a very smooth paste, there should be no lumps. Then remove this into a bowl and add wheat flour enough to knead a dough. Keep kneading so that you know you have to add more flour. Leave this kneaded dough aside for half and hour.
Divide the dough into small balls, roll each ball into a small puri, spread some ghee on it, fold into a triangle. Dip this into the flour and roll a paratha.
Heat a tava (griddle) spread some ghee, place the paratha on it. Fry from both sides till it is nice golden brown in color.
For people watching out for calories, jaggery is a healthy option to sugar. You can also avoid jaggery as dates have natural sugar and are sweet enough to give a taste to the parathas. Also while roasting avoid ghee.
