Coconut Paratha - Quick Tiffin Recipe

Coconut Paratha is one of my oldest recipe and my favourite paratha dish. Easy and quick tiffin for your dinner within 20 minutes.




It comes together quickly using simple ingredients. I got second prize for this dish in the year 2003 in an inter college cooking competition held at Trichy. It was an unforgettable experience in my life.
The first step is to make your dough for the paratha.The dough is prepared with whole wheat flour like we prepare for our regular chapathi dough. Rest the dough for 10 minutes. Next, the grated coconuts are fried along with chopped green chillies, coriander leaves and mint leaves. Allow this coconut mixture to cool down for 5 minutes and then start preparing your parathas.
