Yesterday I posted my first recipe made with Raw Papaya and today I decided to come up with my second recipe too as I noticed the raw papaya in my fridge had started turning black from a corner. So I just chopped off that portion and continued with my recipe which was suggested by Pooja from Yummy Diaries. You can also follow her on instagram @yummydiaries1. In a conversation with her, she randomly mentioned about one of her village recipe in the hills of Himanchal which is made using raw papaya and happens to be one of her favorite too. KACHCHHE PAPITE KE PARATHE that is made by grated raw papaya mixed with Indian spices and stuffed to make ghee roasted parathe/ Indian flat bread.
Mughlai Kheema Paratha is stuffed flat bread where minced mutton is cooked in spices and filled with eggs to shape a thick fat square packet and served with tangy mint and coriander chutney. Best for any festival or special occasions! Mostly Kheema paratha is mad with white dough that is mad using All purpose flour but here i used both APF and wheat flour in equal quantity. But you can any day use both or any of the one, the technique shall be the same.
Kheema paratha is rich, spicy and heavy and certainly not for the faint hearts. Not advisable to all who are watching calories but yes if you aren’t a weight watcher then one Kheema paratha is enough to keep you fill whole day. Make it for your breakfast, serve it in your dinner parties or simply pack it in your hubby’s lunch box, Kheema paratha is something that is loved by all and shall definitely make your earn accolades.
Serve Mughlai Kheema Paratha along with Dhaniya Pudina Chutney and Boondi Raita for a weekend lunch or dinner.
