Ragi Tofu Paratha/Fingermillet Tofu Paratha

You might have cooked parathas with ragi or either with tofu,but have you ever combined these both nutritious ingredients together in parathas? if not you should definitely give a try to this health,nutritious,super softy parathas definitely.Dunno whether i can say that i prepared this ragi tofu paratha accidentally or intentionally, actually i prepared this paratha during weekend. After a simple tofu pulao for lunch, there were some leftover tofu which i finished adding it in usual ragi paratha.

Trust me, this ragi tofu paratha turned out extremely super soft,we enjoyed thoroughly this healthy paratha for our dinner with a cauliflower curry. Needless to say how healthy both ragi and tofu are, adding these both ingredients in parathas is definitely a best way to sneak this nutritious ragi and soya cheese aka tofu. I know how kids dislikes tofu, i had loads of experience in it. Dont forget to feed them atleast once a week, i love to feed my kids tofu by adding them tofu quite often in parathas.Sending to my own event Healthy Diet - Healthy Lunch Box guest hosted by Sowmya and to Pari's Only Food for Pregnancy.

1/2cup Ragi flour
2cups Whole wheat flour
1/4cup Silken tofu (pureed)
1/2cup Warm water
Oil for cooking
Flour (for dusting)

Take the ragi flour,whole wheat flour,salt in a bowl.

Gradually add the pureed tofu, warm water 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 spicy side dish or kurma..
