Bengali Triangle Parota & Alu Bati Charchari

I love to cook various cuisines,quite often i never failed to try and taste many wonderful dishes from those cuisines...I wanted to prepare some rotis but not the same usual rotis which i make usually for our dinner, while going through Bong Mom's Cookbook this triangle parota and potato curry served along with the parota tempted me a lot and the best part of this both recipes is they goes for easy breezy preparation also these both dishes gets ready within less than 30minutes which sounds and suits prefect for me,thats why without any hesitation i prepared this wonderful looking parota and alu bati charchari for our today's lunch...Both together tastes absolutely divine and we loved it..Parota turned out super soft and the alu bati charchari gets ready quickly with a distinct flavour coz of the mustard oil...Most of us know that Bengali cuisine goes often for mustard oil,which is quite unfamiliar for South Indians like me, i picked a bottle of mustard oil when we went to Indian grocery last week to try out dishes with it..For the first time i used mustard oil in my cooking and everyone at home loved the flavour of mustard oil..I have to say a big thanks to Sandeepa for sharing this fabulous parotas and alu bati charchari....Sending to Nayna's Flavors of Bengal guest hosted by Priya..

Bengali parota

Bengali Triangle Parota:
1cup All purpose flour/Maida
1cup Wholewheat flour
1tbsp Ghee
1cup Warm water
Salt
Flour for dusting & rolling
Ghee+oil for cooking

In a large bowl, take together the flours,salt and ghee,gradually add the warm water and turn everything as a smooth and soft dough,cover the bowl with damp kitchen towel and keep aside for 15minutes..Knead well the dough after 15minutes and make medium sized balls...

Dust the balls with enough flour,roll them as small sized circles, fold the circle as semi circle and fold the semi circle to triangle (lift the right end of the semi circle to meet the left end)..Roll well the triangle as large triangles dusted with enough flour...Heat a tawa,drop gently the rolled triangle parota,drizzle the ghee or oil,cook on both sides until they get well cooked..

Alu Bati Charchari:
4nos Potatoes (cut lengthwise)
2tbsp Mustard oil
4nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
Salt
Water

Heat mustard oil, fry the slit opened green chillies, immediately add the potatoes,salt and turmeric powder,saute everything for few seconds, add enough water to cover the potatoes,cook everything without stirring the potatoes until the water gets disappears, finally drizzle some mustard oil and serve along with the triangle parota..

Enjoy this wonderful dishes together for lunch or for dinner,the choice is urs...
