trikoni paratha ( sprouts paratha )

These parathas are very healthy,filling and very nutritious,basically a wholesome meal.The  gram flour here acts as a binding agent and hence used very less just to maintain the triangle shape .It wont give much taste to it  , but it really helps while folding into the desired shape  ,it will stick automatically with a little pressure given by the spatula ,some may find it little tricky to give this shape whilst on hot tava but if worked on low flame it will turn out perfect or else you may end up with a burnt paratha ;) .This stuffed paratha is always in the lime light in my family and friends circle for the reasons being healthy,its  shape  and particularly the lavish stuffing,it might be chilli friendly as we marwaris love hot and spicy food so please do adjust the chillies according to your taste buds.It is best served with sweet raita/lassi or yogurt,though my hubby will have it with  hot cut mango pickle :).Sending this to priya for her wonderful event let's sprout.
ingredients :
1cup par bolied sprouts (moong /matki) (it shud not be too soft and mushy )
1tbsp grated carrot
1tbsp finely chopped capsicum
1tbsp finely chopped onions
1tbs gram flour (besan)
1tsp red chilli pwd
2 finely chopped green chillies
1/4 cup water
salt to taste
oil for frying the parathas
regular aatta ( chapati dough )
method :
Mix water and gram flour together with no lumps formed,add sprouts,all vegetables,green chillies salt & red chilli pwd and mix well.Keep  this stuffing aside.Heat the tawa,roll out a regular size round chapati and put it on the tawa,heat both the sides for a few sec then on one side of chapati ,generously spread 2 tbsp of sprouts mixture all over it ,gently and carefully fold into triangle shape and press the folds slightly with the spatula,drizzle oil on it and carefully turn over.Drizzle oil on the other side too.Serve hot with sweet pickles/murrabba/chunda or yoghurt.
