I tried to experiment and coming up with a recipe to use up my nearly expired bread slices. Since we prefer to have a savory over sweet dish to start our day, this Bread Paratha is created.
The bread slices were slightly toasted before processing them into bread crumbs. The bread crumbs along with flour, onion, mashed potato, green chili, chopped cilantro, minced ginger, milk and salt are then combined to form a pliable dough. Make sure you add the milk/water little by little until you get a right consistency. Adding to much milk will result a sticky and hard to roll paratha.
For the recipe below, you will get 4 small paratha but it can easily doubled to suit your requirement. They are best served hot immediately after you've fried them.
Yield : 4 paratha
6 bread slices turned into bread crumbs
2 tablespoon flour
1 big onion sliced
1 small potato boiled and mashed
2 green chili chopped
2 tablespoon chopped cilantro
small piece ginger grated
2-3 tablespoon milk/water
salt to taste
oil for shallow frying
Place the bread slices on flat pan, cook until both side turn light brown. You can also bake them in single layer for 10 minutes @ 150 C, halfway through flip the bread. Let cool slightly.
Remove the bread, tear into small pieces onto your food processor. Whirl into coarse meal.
Place bread crumbs, flour and mashed potato in a mixing bowl,
Mix in onion, green chili, chopped cilantro and ginger.
Gradually add milk, a tablespoon at a time to form into a dough,
Divide into 4 balls. flatten each ball into small disc.
Place the paratha on a heated flat pan, drizzle with oil, fry until brown spots appear, turn it over to cook the other side. Remove from the pan.
Complete the rest of the dough..
