I made this apple paratha today to celebrate this wonderful occasion with my family and we all loved it ❤
This is a unique and new paratha. Instead of the usual aloo paratha, this is a innovative paratha with the flavours of apple, walnuts, cardamom and dates syrup. The walnuts and apple complement each other beautifully in flavour. This is a perfect paratha to celebrate any occasion! It is extremely delicious and can be eaten at any time of the day. It is sugar-free and very healthy too so it is a good alternative to the normal parathas.
The antioxidants in apple help to reduce damage of cells, and hence prevent many diseases. Apples are beneficial in the treatment of both constipation (raw apples) and diarrhoea (cooked/stewed apples). Apples are also good for diabetics as the soluble fibre assists in regulating blood sugar, preventing a sudden increase or drop in serum sugar levels. Apples also have a mouth-cleansing property, and offer a tasty way to bright, shiny teeth! Apples are of special value to heart patients, as they are rich in potassium and phosphorous but low in sodium. The fruit is also effective against high blood pressure because of its diuretic effect.
Ingredients for filling
1 grated apple
2 tbsp powdered walnut powder
2 tsp dates syrup
1/4th tsp cardamom powder
1/4th tsp ghee
oil for cooking
Ingredients for dough
For The Dough

4. Add the dates syrup and cardamom powder and cook till ready (perfect consistency)
5. Roll 1 portion of the dough in to a small circle. Put a portion of the above stuffing in the middle, and close it by bringing all the edges in the middle and roll it again to make it a paratha.
6. Heat a griddle and cook the paratha on both the sides till light brown in colour using a little oil.
7. Repeat with the remaining dough and stuffing to make 5 more parathas.
