I made the sauce with cashews and coriander this time. I have been wanting to use nuts for a long time. Cashews almost gave a cheesy taste and coriander a nice flavour. On the whole, the pasta was quite delicious and we all loved it.
Making food for kids is the most difficult thing.Especially if your kids is choosy like my son, then cooking is definitely a challenge. That is why if my son appreciates something I cook, then I can guarantee that the recipe is keeper. I have won!! He is more fond of restaurant styled food, pizzas, pastas and burgers. When I try to recreate at home with healthy ingredients as I always do, it seldom wins some appreciation by him. But anyway, I keep trying and try to avoid too much of outside food. I do have to force him sometimes though….
A friend of mine makes this often. She had once made this for a get together as one of the side dishes and I asked for the recipe. I have also made this a couple of times(infact whenver I buy the coriander leaves and mint leaves) by now and use it in different preparations too. I once made a dal with it(recipe coming soon. ) I also add it in my pulao for the extra flavour. I just serve it with rotis along with subji and dal as an extra side dish. It tastes even good with our curd rice….
Nothing much of a story about these parathas,except I found the recipe in a tarla dalal cook book . I love coriander and love to add them to all my subjis and my rasam is incomplete without them. I have been making lot of parathas nowadays, especially cheese parathas – my son’s favourite. I made them recently and it tasted quite nice. It goes well with some dal or tomato gravy. I did not find it very appealing with curds because the parathas were mildly spiced and went well with some spicy dal. But its your choice completely. Try them…
