Tasty and Easy Cauliflower Mint Parathas

Parathas are traditionally delicious and indulgent, but you can give them a healthy twist and turn them into the perfect addition to your weight-loss plan.

Try to imagine a proper paratha for breakfast, and you will inevitably think of an indulgent food experience: the crispy flour shell glistening with a layer of butter or ghee, the stuffing spiced and chock full of flavours, and a finger-licking spread of pickles, chutneys, curd and lassi to go with it.

Now, imagine you are starting a weight loss plan to become truly fit and healthy. You are trying to cut all the food items that are excessive from your diet.

Actually, they can. Parathas are traditionally delicious and indulgent, but you can also give them a healthy twist and turn them into the perfect addition to your weight-loss plan.

Tips to make your paratha healthy :

The first thing you need to do is to break down that paratha breakfast into all its separate components. The things you need to make a good paratha are a flour dough, spiced stuffing, and oil, ghee or butter. The next step is substituting some of these ingredients for healthier options which are easily available at local markets.

To get you started, we put together some options you can explore to have parathas (occasionally) as part of your weight loss plan.

1. The flour: Most of us know that whole wheat flour has more dietary fibre, vitamins B1 and B9, and minerals like phosphorus, magnesium, iron and zinc than refined flour or maida. But what’s even better for making healthier parathas is buckwheat flour. Colloquially known as kuttu atta, it is a gluten-free option popular in north India. High dietary fibre, protein as well as minerals such as manganese, magnesium, iron and copper make paratha made with this flour waist-friendly and heart-healthy.

2. The oil: Cooking the parathas dry and then applying ghee on top is also a good idea. If you are taking this route, try cooking your paratha on a low heat to ensure that it is cooked through olive oil or Ghee, when consumed moderately, has some health benefits too: it contains omega 3 fatty acids such as linoleic acid and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are said to improve heart health and actually help with weight loss!
