Healthy Parathas Recipe

    Email Pin It

‘Healthy Parathas’ (paranthas) sounds unbelievable, but there are options to make a paratha healthier. Use less ghee/oil and make it from whole wheat (atta), as opposed to refined wheat (maida). Whole wheat has more fiber, protein and vitamins, than refined wheat. Refined wheat (maida) also makes your blood sugar spike, due to its high glycemic index, and it make you fat.

You can do this at home, but when you go out, its tough. We love our parathas, but not the lard that comes with them. So, we mostly stick with eating rotis when eating out. The restaurants just don’t seem to understand that food can have flavour without dousing it in a vat of lard.

But there is one place that serves healthy paranthas. Actually, a chain of restaurants in New Delhi, that serves over a 100 types of parathas- Not Just Paranthas.  They have healthier versions of most paranthas called ‘diet parathas’. These are made from whole grains, roasted instead of fried and served without ghee if you specify.

Eating the ‘diet parantha’ is much better choice- its got fewer calories, less fat since they skip the ghee, more fiber and protein since its made from whole grains, and does not promote fat storage, since its not made from refined wheat (maida). Its a no-brainer :)

    Make your paranthas healthier,more nutritious and more flavourful by mixing a variety of flours…..Whole Wheat flour,Makki,Bajra,Ragi,Chana,Jowar,Besan,Soya,ground Flax seeds and the list is endless. keep trying a new variation everytime for tasty paranthas. Mix 2 or more flours and add some finely chopped greens like Spinach,Methi leaves,Coriander,Pudina,Bathua,Green chillies,grated Carrot,grated Radish,finely chopped Cabbage, grated or cooked Cauliflour,boiled mashed Potatoes,salt or Ajwain or any other seasoning you like.Knead together very well with water,or dahi or even left over dal to make your paranthas soft. keep making a new one everyday. For harrassed moms give it to fussy kids as they will just love the vegetable paranthas served with dahi. AND lastly use as little oil as possible. you could do the same for rotis !!
