Navratri Vrat Paratha, also known as Rajgira Paratha, is a type of Indian flatbread made from Rajgira flour (Amaranth flour) which is consumed during the Hindu festival of Navratri. It is a fasting food and can be consumed during the festival when grains and cereals are not consumed. The dough is made by mixing Rajgira flour, salt, and water and then rolled into small balls and fried with ghee or oil.
Here is a simple recipe for Navratri Vrat Paratha:
- 1 cup Rajgira flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Water, as needed
- Ghee or oil for cooking
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the Rajgira flour and salt.
- Slowly add water to the flour mixture and knead it into a soft and smooth dough.
- Let the dough rest for 15-20 minutes.
- Divide the dough into small balls.
- Roll each ball into small parathas using a rolling pin.
- Heat a griddle or a non-stick pan over medium heat and add a little ghee or oil.
- Place the paratha on the griddle and cook until small bubbles appear on the surface, then flip it over.
- Cook the other side, adding more ghee or oil if needed.
- Remove from the griddle and serve hot with a side of yogurt or chutney.
Note: You can also add some more spices like cumin powder or coriander powder to the dough for added flavor.
