Eggplant paratha……yes , you read it right. My today’s recipe under alphabet E is Eggplant Paratha’.
If you are regular at my blog, you must be aware that I’m taking part in month long mega marathon with theme A to Z Indian flatbreads. Infact, I jumped into this marathon without any preparation. Though I have to struggle to find out flatbreads under our alphabets, for letter E, I was sure from the beginning itself. The reason is, this is my secret ingredient. I have fed my kids this paratha a number of times but they don’t haven’t come to know till date that it has eggplant.
Like most other kids, my kids too hate eggplant. They don’t want to see it even. Whenever they see it in vegetable basket, will start grumbling…. Why do you bring it…Who eats eggplant… And so on. But if there are fussy, I’m also a stubborn mom. They don’t even realize when eggplant goes in sambar, bhaji they enjoy with pav, chopped eggplant in pakoras they love and this eggplant paratha. Smart hun na mein 😀.
Aloo Baingan and Baingan bharta are regular in my family. So wherever I make bharta, I keep some to make eggplant paratha for the kids. So for making this paratha you can either use leftover bharta or make it from the start.
Here is my Eggplant Paratha. Make it for those who hate eggplant. Shhhh… Don’t tell them it has eggplant 😷 it’s a secret between you and me 🙂
