Cumin Flavored Tofu Paratha/Tofu Paratha with Cumin seeds

After paneer, i couldnt resist to prepare some healthy parathas with silken tofu which is simply flavoured with slightly crushed roasted cumin seeds. Cumin seeds gives a pleasant flavor to this healthy and super soft paratha. If you are planning to add tofu in your dishes, just give a try to this fantastic paratha. Though silken tofu is usually used in many desserts, they suits absolutely prefect for making parathas too. Silken tofu grinded as fine paste works awesome for making parathas. It helps a lot to give the softness while making parathas. Trust me kids will definitely enjoy this healthy, protein rich parathas very well with any side dish.

Prefect to wrap as sandwich or to pack for lunch, these tofu parathas stays super soft in your kid's lunchbox. Served along with spicy side dish or else rolled as sandwich with any filling, these parathas are excellent for any ages. Since tofu is loaded with proteins, this paratha is an excellent food for vegetarians. Am running this week's blogging marathon with Kid's delight-Lunch box as theme, hence am posting this fantastic tofu paratha for this week's theme.

I don't like tofu much and the only one time I ever cooked was to make a stuffed paratha with it. I guess making a roti like this also should address the dislike of the ingredient!..good choice..

Adding tofu to parathas is not only healthy, but also a welcome change from conventional parathas. Lovely pick!

I don't like tofu much. Probably should try some rotis like this. Good one said...

I do make stuffed tofu parathas n my kids like it, but never incorporated it in dough. It must have made the job easier with the same taste n health benefits
