Ajwain Triangle Parantha/ Ajwain Parantha/ Flat Bread with Carom Seeds

Ajwain Triangle Parantha/
Ajwain Parantha/
Flat Bread with Carom Seeds

Hi Friends,
Who don't like piping hot paranthas. Paranthas are always welcome and a unavoidable breakfast in Northern Indian families. Stuffed paranthas are a real treat on bone chilling mornings. But sometimes putting efforts to make stuffed paranthas take back gear so this kind of ajwain paranthas comes for the rescue. You can make this parantha on a busy morning and relish with anything you like. This is so easy and takes very less time to make. A big hit in my house as i can make them any day. 

You can make them with ghee or butter or even with vegetable oil. I make paranthas for me and my mother with vegetable oil as it has less calories then ghee (clarified butter). You can make them in round or square shapes also. But this shape in bit different and kids enjoy it a lot. So i prefer making them triangle. Ajwain/carom seeds are also good for health specially in winters so it plays duel role to flavor the parantha with medicinal touch to our health. So friends make it and enjoy winter mornings.
