This paratha is vegan friendly as well. To make this paratha (call it flat bread) requires 3 ingredients, namely Amarantha flour, oil and salt. Sometimes boiled potato can also be added for better binding of paratha.

I like this paratha as its good to be consumed during the fasting days of Indian festival Navratri.

Time to make this paratha is barely 15 mins.  So what else could you ask for? Its Vegan, its gluten free, its easy to make, its quick to make and tastes nothing short of delicious!

Below is step by step recipe of Amarantha (Rajgira) Paratha.

Recipe Notes
  1. Don’t make the dough too soft otherwise you won’t be able to roll them.
  2. Don’t make the parantha too thin as it will break while transferring them on to pan.
  3. Knead the dough for few good minutes as that will help in rolling them nicely.
