Kalonji Paratha

Kalonji is also known as black seed but sometimes it is misleadingly known as onion seed ... it has pungent bitter taste and smell and is mostly used in some types of naan and parathas.


Wheat flour - 1 cup
Maida - 1 cup
Kalonji - 2 tsp
Oil - 1 tblsp
Salt - to taste
Ghee /Oil - to make parathas

Procedure :

Knead the dough by mixing wheat flour, maida, kalonji , oil and salt using water as required . Take a small ball of the dough roll it like a small roti and apply ghee on the inside, then fold the roti in a triangle form . Again roll it out but not very thin. Heat the tava and cook using ghee or oil till both sides are done. Serve hot with any vegetable.

I served mine with tomato and capsicum sabji.
