Making pizza meant I wouldn't have enough dough for the focaccia, since I didn't want to sacrifice the Aloo Paratha. It sounded too good. While it isn't a traditional Aloo Paratha, it was pretty darn good! If you want to make a traditional Indian Paratha, visit Apartha's Blog, My Diverse Kitchen, for a recipe and handy video. When making the HBin5 version, I used one huge sweet potato in place of white potatoes. Why? I like them better, it was all I had on hand, and it's better for you, duh. I added a teaspoon full of garam masala to my potato filling and had to up the salt a bit, too. I did end up with a few air bubbles, but the flavor was awesome, and even E liked it.
After filling my dough, I ended up with a lot of filling left over. That was one mammoth potato. I couldn't let it go to waste, so into a pot it went with a little leftover pumpkin puree, more peas, and some stock to make a soup. Fast, easy, soo yummy! Plus, with the health benefits of the pumpkin (it's loaded with antioxidants, fiber, and vitamins C and E), the sweet potato (also full of antioxidants and vitamins, that's why it's called a super food!) and yes, even the peas ( good sources of vitamin, C, K and carotenes) it's a power soup!
Triple "P" Super Soup (or Souper Soup if you are punny, which I am not, 'cause obviously)
1 cup mashed sweet potato
1 cup pureed pumpkin
1 cup green peas (no need to thaw if they are frozen)
2-2 1/2 cups vegetable or chicken broth
1 tsp. curry powder
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. garam masala
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
Combine all ingredients in a medium pot and stir over medium heat until warmed through. And that's it, now share with friends or be greedy and freeze whatever you can't inhale yourself for later :)
