Delight in the wholesome goodness of Wheat Parotta, a delectable blend of wheat flour, coconut, and jaggery folded into a golden-brown perfection.

Indulge in the unique flavours of Wheat Parotta. This South Indian delicacy beautifully marries the essence of wheat flour, grated coconut’s richness, and powdered jaggery’s sweetness. This dish holds a special place in the hearts of those seeking a healthier twist to the classic parotta. The wheat flour lends a wholesome touch, making it a choice that’s both tasty and nutritious.

The dough is prepared by blending wheat flour with milk, a hint of ghee, and a pinch of salt. This dough is kneaded perfectly, setting the stage for the upcoming flavour symphony. The magic begins when this dough is shaped into small, lemon-sized balls and flattened into small circles. The heart of this dish lies in the filling – a combination of grated coconut, sautéed carrots, jaggery, and a dash of cardamom powder. This delightful mixture is rolled within the dough, ensuring it’s encased securely.

The filled dough is then rolled out into medium-sized parottas, ensuring the luscious filling is trapped within, ready to burst with flavour. Cooked on a heated tawa with a drizzle of ghee, the parottas turn a glorious golden brown, exuding an aroma that’s simply irresistible. Serve these hot and crisp Wheat Parottas with sides, spicy curry or a cooling raita.
