Kothu vegetable paratha

This recipe was told to me by my friend Janaki.


Paratha - 5nos.
Mixed vegetables - 2cups (shredded carrots, beans, cauliflower, peas, cabbage, baby corns split lengthwise)
Onion big - 1no.
Tomato - 2nos.
Ginger - small piece
Curry leaves - little
Corriander leaves - little
Hing - little
Sugar - 1tsp
Mustard - 1tsp
Jeera - 1tsp
Garam masala - 1tsp
Chilli powder - 1tsp
Turmeric powder - 1tsp
Corriander powder - 1/2tsp
Salt - to taste
Oil - little (5-6tsp)

1. Wash and cut the vegetables. Cut the onion lengthwise. Dice the tomatoes. Grate the ginger.
2. Heat the tawa and cook the paratha's till both the sides are golden brown. Place all the parathas on top of each other and cut into small squares using a sharp knife.
3. Heat the kadai, add oil, then the hing, mustard and jeera. Once it splits add onions and sugar and fry for 2min. Then add tomatoes. Saute it. Add to it turmeric powder, chilli powder, corriander powder and garam masala powder. Once the oil in it seperates and the smell of the powders have disappeared add the vegetables, ginger, salt and sprinkle water and cover it. After 5-7min when the vegetables are cooked add the paratha pieces, curry leaves and mix well. Remove from fire.
4. If needed a tsp of lemon juice can be added and mixed well. Garnish with corriander leaves.
5. Serve hot with any type of raitha.
