Ragi-Quinoa Methi Paratha

Nowadays am preparing myself multigrain flours with a combination of quinoa,barley,horsegram,oats and dals using mixie, recently i prepared some flours with whole quinoa..I combined ragi flour,home made quinoa flour along with whole wheat flour together to prepare this wonderful paratha along with frozen methi leaves...Needless to say that this paratha tastes simply marvellous,nutritious and healthy and goes prefect for dinner or breakfast when served along simply with spicy coconut chutney and vegetable kurma..We had a wonderful dinner yesterday with this healthy parathas..Am sending this fabulous paratha to Srivalli's Breakfast Mela & to Herbs & Flowers In My Platter guest hosted Kalyani,event by PJ..

Ragi-Quinoa Methi Paratha

1/2cup Ragi flour
1cup Quinoa flour
1cup Whole wheat flour
1/2cup Methi leaves
Salt
1tbsp Flax seeds
1cup Yogurt
Oil for cooking
Flour (for dusting)

Take the ragi flour,quinoa flour,whole wheat flour,methi leaves, salt,flax seeds in a bowl, gradually add the yogurt,water(if needed) and knead as smooth dough, keep aside for half an hour..

Make 8-10 medium sized balls from the dough, dust rolled balls with enough flour and roll as parathas..heat a tawa, drop gently the flattened discs,drizzle the oil and cook on both sides until the paratha gets well cooked..

Serve hot with coconut chutney or kurma..
