Traditions are good if they give you lot of good memories. But its not something you got to keep up, for the sake of keeping it up right! I never believe in that but at times, just for the old memories, I try to do certain things that happened in the past. Like making stuffed parathas
around this time. I know stuffed parathas
might sound very daily affair to many. Maybe I have south indianised
it to my taste. But they hold a very special place in my menu. Stuffed parathas
are bound to induce passion and great sense of content when they are prepared and adore the table so beautifully. I have made many types of stuffed parathas
, but never attempted at Gobi ki parathas
I had planned for this yesterday but as I said, hubby dear took us for dinner and so it was postponed to today. Konda
had gone along with him to order the cake and they came back with a chocolate cake, because I like chocolate, though I don't eat this cake. Isn't that funny! They remembered to get me a peice
cake too. The boys were excited to sing haapy haapy burthday
and I guess the writing on the cake was Konda's
idea. Well the wishes seem to be for everyday!
The day was quite hectic with the boys fighting over the new cars they were given. Then back home in the evening, they again got on playing, only after a while they settled down together. By the time we got down to cutting the cake, it was time for the boys to sleep. I got back making these Gobi parathas after they slept. Chinnu and Konda are sound sleepers while Peddu gets up frequently. So I had to pat him again just now. Its pretty late now, so let me hop on to the recipe right away, am sure most of you must be doing it similar way!

Gobi Paratha with Yogurt/ Curds and Pickle ~ Dinner!
For the dough :
Knead dough as you do the regular dough, rest it for 10 mins.
