I have not many times had pudina paratha, only may be once in a restaurant. Don’t remember anything about it. For long time wanted to try it out at home. Last week when I went for groceries shopping, picked a fresh bunch of mint and ground some green chutney, saved the rest cleaned and ready.
I had mint paratha in mind. The one I had in restaurant had only dried mint crushed smeared over laccha paratha here and there. Never wanted fresh mint in my paratha, at least not the first time when I try. So, I dried it in oven and kept dried mint ready. Took a week for me to try paratha 😅.

pudina-paratha-recipeAlso this is nice way to preserve mint, instead of make it go waste. You can keep mint as dried herb and use it in this way in mint paratha. Also can use it in pakoras for an excellent flavour.

Use just wheat flour if you want to avoid maida/ all purpose flour. Check out the video for rolling laccha paratha similarly.

For dough

  • 1 cup wheat flour/ atta
  • 1/2 cup maida/all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • Salt as needed

To mix together

  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp amchoor powder
  • 1/4 tsp cumin seeds powder (roasted)
  • 2 tbsp Ghee
  • 2 tbsp oil
  1. Take 1 cup wheat flour, 1/2 cup maida in a mixing bowl. Add salt, 1 tbsp oil and mix well. Add required water and mix well.

  2. Knead to a smooth pliable dough and keep aside for minimum 10 mins.
  3. After resting time, knead again smoothly and divide into 6 equal sized balls.

  4. In a small bowl, mix dried mint, 2 tbsp oil, 2 tbsp ghee, red chilli powder, amchoor powder, cumin seeds powder.

  5. Spread out each dough ball into thick rotis. Smear a tbsp of the mint spice mix, evenly over the roti.
  6. Roll the roti as shown in picture. Cut into two in the mid using knife leaving one end intact.
  7. Coil the roti and keep aside. Let it rest 10 mins minimum again.
  8. Spread gently into thick parathas. Dust with flour while spreading out.
  9. Heat tawa and cook the paratha both sides in medium flame. Gently press using spatula while cooking.
  • Use generous oil or ghee to define the layers well. Otherwise it will get together and layers won’t be visible.
  • Too much sticky dough leads to difficulty in rolling as well as defining the layers unless use lots of oil/ flour while rolling.
  • You can use only wheat flour and avoid maida / all purpose flour.
