Coriander-kothimbir paratha

Paratha is type of indian bread we used to eat in our main course with curry or in stuffed form in breakfast as well.You will found lot of variations in paratha either in stuffed paratha or in plain paratha with lots of seasoning.In north-Indian region people have parathas in their breakfast as well and parathas are their specialty i must say.

Kothimbir paratha – is very easy to make paratha.Dhaniya-jeera parathas are made with fresh coriander leaves (cilantro), wheat flour and cumin.
This paratha can be served as a quick breakfast or dinner with any curry, some curd or raita or pickle.  It can also be packed for kids lunch box.  I always stock bunches of coriander leaves either for making chutney or for making these parathas.  The rest are stored in the refrigerator.

I Request you to please take care to wash and chop the coriander leaves before adding to the dough. You can take the stem part if it is tender otherwise, remove them and add the leaves along while making coriander paratha.
You can also combine coriander and mint to make mint-coriander paratha.  I usually add ghee when I make this paratha in the morning and add less amount of oil when I make it at night.
you can even combine All purpose flour and wheat flour to make soft parathas however i am following my Mumma's Method by adding curd only.
You can check my other parathas variations like : Gujarati thepla , cheesy palak paratha , plain paratha , mooli paratha
