Simple Carrot Paratha(just right for kids school pack)

This carrot paratha i make exclusively  for my elder daughter for her lunch box.she  is not too keen if i pack roti or chapathi with curry.This works good.It is not  very spicy and extravagent  but a simple one .


For the dough
1 cup of Wheat flour
1 tsp oil
Salt to taste

For  the stuffing
1 medium sized  carrot(grated)
1 tsp finely chopped green chillies
1tsp of finely chopped coriander
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/4 tsp chat masala(optional)
Salt to taste

Preperation for the dough
Combine all the ingredients and knead into a soft ,smooth dough using enough water.
Divide the dough into equal portions.keep aside.

For the stuffing
Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds,once they crackle add grated carrot and green chillies.saute.(do not over cook as grated carrots do not take longer to get cooked.turn off heat and add salt and coriander (chopped).chat masala can be sprinkled (if desired).It tastes great without masala too.
Keep it aside till it cools down and then make into equal portions to be stuffed.

To make the paratha

Roll out one of the dough into a circle using wheat flour for rolling.
Place one portion of the stuffing in the centre of the circle.
Bring together all the sides in the centre and seal tightly.
Roll out again into a circle using wheat flour for rolling.
