Paratha and Mutton Varattiyathu

The Kerala paratha or porotta, as some would have it, is a culinary marvel; to watch it being made is in itself appetizing. Now, the revamped wheat paratha ensures that it's not just another junk food. Pair it with some spicy mutton varattiyathu, and it's bliss!

Ingredients

For Paratha


3 cups wheat flour

Salt, as required

1 tsp sugar

100ml milk

Oil, as required


For Mutton Varattiyathu


200gm chopped mutton

100ml oil

100gm onion, finely chopped

Ginger, finely chopped

1 tsp Garlic, finely chopped

5 green chillies, slit lengthwise

15 red onions, finely chopped

Curry leaves, as required

2 tomatoes, finely chopped

2 tsp coriander powder

1 tsp red chilli powder

½ tsp Kashmiri red chilli powder

½ tsp turmeric powder

½ tsp garam masala powder

½ tsp whole black pepper powder, crushed

Salt, as required

1 cup coconut milk

½ tsp mustard seeds

3 dried red chillies

Curry leaves, as required

2 tsp cashew nuts, chopped



Preparation

To make Paratha


Add the wheat flour, salt, sugar and milk to a vessel and knead well until it becomes a dough. Add water as required. Keep aside for 2 hours

Make small rounds from the dough and add some oil on top of it. Let it rest for some time.

Now, flatten each round into light ones and apply oil on both sides.

Take the dough and roll it inside and out, and make it like a fan. Make it into round shape again.

Now, flatten it like how a chappathi is made.

Heat a tawa and pour some oil. Cook each paratha by applying oil on both sides.



To make Mutton Varattiyathu


Chop the mutton into fine pieces

Take a pan and heat oil in it. Add onions, ginger, garlic, green chillies, red onions, and curry leaves. Saute well

Once it becomes golden brown colour, add tomatoes, coriander powder, red chilli powder, Kashmiri red chilli powder, turmeric powder, garam masala powder, and crushed whole black pepper powder. Saute well

When the masala smell leaves the pan, add the mutton pieces and salt. Cook on medium flame

Once mutton is cooked, add coconut milk and remove it from the stove before it boils

In another pan, heat oil and let the mustard seeds splutter. Add dried red chillies, curry leaves, and chopped cashew nuts. Saute until they are roasted. Add this to the mutton and serve hot
