makai ka paratha ( sweet corn paratha )

Actually this recipie happened to be makai ka upma which my mom makes for us in our quick breakfasts but one day when i was making this upma by mistake i added more garam masala which gave a spicy taste and was not etall palatable so my husband advised me to use this mixture in aata and make parathas out of it and since then i make this upma and use as a paratha stuffing,sometimes i really feel my husband is best critics in my cooking though cooking is not his cup of tea but can give creative ideas and tips to me.
ingredients :
1cup sweet corn kernels ( fresh/frozen,if frozen thaw it before using)
1/2 cup  poha ( rice flakes)
1-2 green chillies
1tsp red chilli pwd
1-2 tsps garam masala
1-2 tsps lemon juice
1/2 tsp turmeric pwd
1tbsp oil
corriander leaves
wheat dough ( regular chapati aatta )
method :
wash poha ,drain and keep aside.crush green chiilies and corn together in a grinder.heat oil,add all the masalas,immediately add crushed corn,poha,mix,add salt and lime juice.mix well.add finely chopped corriander leaves and mix.take a lemon size ball dough roll it into puri size,place ltl corn filling in centre and close the edges and make a ball and flatten it and again roll into chapati/paratha size and roast on heated tawa ,fry adding ltl oil on both the sides till brown and serve hot with yoghurt or pickles.
