Onmyplate today is a delicious recipe “Onion & Tomato tawa Patty” which I experimented yesterday while trying to make a comfort food. This is a combination of frankie and roasted paratha which is served hot with sauce.
I have given this dish a name of “tawa Patty” as it is cooked on tawa; a flat iron utensil used to cook chapatis or Indian bread. It is mouth watering and delicious in taste and apart from this it is easy to cook with minimal ingredients handy at home.
A healthy and tasty snack perfect for high tea. Try if you like and share your experience!!
Maida (Flour) 1/2 cup
Onion 1 medium cut into thin rings
Tomato 1 medium cut into thin rings
Fresh Green chili 1 chopped
Red chili flakes 1/4 tsp
Mayonnaise 1 tbsp
Tomato sauce 1 tsp
Salt 1 pinch
Black salt 1/4 tsp or according to taste
Oil 1 tbsp
Take a bowl and add Maida, salt, 1 tsp oil, 1/4 cup water; mix well and knead into a smooth dough
Divide it into two equal portions
Roll the dough into thin chapatis of 5-6 inches diameter
Take one of the chapatis and spread Mayonnaise evenly on it, leaving 1/2 inch on the sides
Now take onion rings and spread it over the Mayonnaise
Then add tomato rings and finely add another layer of onion rings
Now add fresh green chili, red chili flakes and sprinkle black salt
Top the filling with tomato sauce
Dip your fingers in the water and wet the sides left near the filling
Now cover the fillings with the second chapati
Press the sides of the chpatis with the tip of your fingers so that the fillings doesn’t come out
Heat the tawa and smear little oil
Now place the patty on the tawa and cook it in low heat
Drop few drops of oil from the sides and few drops over the patty
Turn it to the other side in 1-2 minutes since by this time it would turn light brown in color
Now add few more drops of oil from the sides and cook in low heat for 1-2 minutes
Remove from heat and serve hot with sauce of your choice!!
