Soybean, though a vegetarian source of protein, ranks equivalent to meat with respect to quality. Soybean is considered as a significant commercial pulse of the world. Paratha stuffed with spices and soya granules, or minced soy is rich in proteins. You can even pack it for kids with their favourite sauce or chutney.

- 1 pinch Asafoetida
- 1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
- 1/2 tsp Salt or as per taste
Take 1 cup water in a saucepan and place it on the flame.
When water is hot enough, turn off the flame and put soy granules into it.
Cover and keep aside for 10-15 minutes.
Mix well flour, oil and salt and with the help of water, knead a soft dough.
Cover the dough with a wet cloth and keep it aside to set for about 20 minutes.
Preheat a pan with 2 tsp oil.
When oil is hot, add cumin seed.
After cumin seeds begin to crack, add green chilly paste, ginger paste, asafoetida and capsicum.
Saute for few minutes.
Add soy granules and salt. Mix all ingredients well.
Stir the stuffing for 2 minutes continuously and add green coriander.
Turn off the flame and transfer the filling to a bowl.
Knead the dough again until smooth.
Preheat a tawa over the flame. Pull out a part of the kneaded dough.
Roll out a round parantha with 4 to 5-inch diameter.
Place 2 tsp stuffing in the centre and close the paratha from all sides.
Gently flatten the stuffed dough ball between your palms.
Roll out gently into parantha with 5 to 6-inch diameter. Dust with dry flour when needed so it does not stick to the surface or roll pin.
On a hot tawa, spread some oil.
Now place the parantha over the tawa and allow to roast from both sides till light brown spots appear.
Take off the parantha from tawa.
Serve it hot with curd, hummus dip, chutney or tomato sauce and relish eating it!!
