Flaxmeal Tomato Paratha

I rarely buy storebought pasta sauce prepared basically with tomatoes and Italian herbs, my H bought his favourite tomato pasta sauce a few days back. After enjoying his favourite sauce with pastas,there were some leftover which none at home want to have with anything, i tried out making this paratha using that leftover tomato sauce along with flax seed meal and dry methi leaves, for my surprise this parathas turned out super delicious ,aromatic coz of all those Italian herbs and dry methi leaves and definitely healthy coz of flax seed meal.We had a wonderful dinner with these parathas and spicy coconut chtuney,needless to say we just loved it.

Flaxmeal & Tomato Paratha

2cups Whole wheat flour
1tbsp Flax seed meal
1/2cup Tomato sauce (storebought one)
1tbsp Kasuri methi
Salt
Oil for cooking
All purpose flour for dusting

Take the whole wheat flour,flax seed meal,tomato sauce,kasuri methi and salt in a vessel, knead everything as soft and smooth dough,add water if needed for kneading,keep aside the dough for half an hour...Make 10-12medium sized balls from the dough,dust the dough and roll as circular discs with the rolling pin..

Heat a tawa,drop gently the rolled parathas,drizzle oil and cook on both sides until the parathas get well cooked..Enjoy with spicy chutney or kurmas..
