Mix bean paratha

Mix beans (Rajma, Corn and butter bean) : 1 cup

Green chilies: 5-6
Mint leaves: 10 leaves
Dry pomegranate seed powder: 1tbs
Tomato puree: 3 tbs
Red chili powder: 2 tbs

Wheat flour: 2 cup
Salt to taste

Soak rajma and butter bean separately overnight or for 12 hours. Boil rajma and butter beans separately with salt till they are soft. Or for ease use the ready made tin.

Boil corn. Mix all beans together. Crush them with hand blender such that 1/3 are whole and rest smooth paste. Mesh remaining 1/3 of whole beans lightly.

Wash and finely chop mint leaves. Wash and finely chop green chilies. Add this to bean paste. Add tomato puree. Add red chili powder, pomegranate powder, salt to taste and all all these to wheat flour. Add 2 tbs of oil.

Now make medium hard dough by adding required water. Cover it with moist cloth and keep it aside for 10 minutes.

Heat the pan. Divide dough into about 8 balls of equal size. Roll them into parathas. Cook on medium hot flame.

Place them on pan and flip over when one side is slightly cooked, apply oil and flip over to another side when other side is lightly cooked and apply oil. Repeat the procedure till parathas are cooked on both sides. Apply butter while for extra taste.

Do the same for remaining balls.

Enjoy this paratha with leafy vegetable or curd.
