Bedmi Paratha

Pin it to save it for later !

Bedmi Paratha ? Yes don't be surprised, you can make and enjoy Bedmi Paratha as much as you like to enjoy Bedmi Poori. Bedmi Paratha are just as tasty as the Bedmi Poori with out the extra calories, and these paratha can be enjoyed with rasadar aloo ki Sabji.

If you are of Indian origin, you must know what I am talking about, one of the best breakfasts of the region of North India - Bedmi Poori aur Aloo ki Sabji or Dubki wale aloo. Few years back I had the chance to enjoy Bedmi Poori with Aloo ki Sabji on my trip to India in Delhi.. since then I wanted to try it.

Last week I wanted to prepare Bajri na Vada for Sheetla Satam, but totally forgot to prepare the dough for it the previous night, so in the morning I soaked urad daal and thought of making Bedmi Poori, and again I changed my mind while I was kneading the dough thinking don't want to prepare Poori as next day on Janmasthmi I was going to prepare calorie loaded food anyway. So instead of Poori we had Bedmi Paratha with Aloo ki Sabji. So all the ingredients are same as Poori, just not fried but shallow fried.
