Salna Recipe - Parotta Salna - Vegetable Salna

Salna Recipe - Parotta Salna - Vegetable Salna:

Salna is the first side dish which comes in our mind for parotta. I am sure every one drools for salna. Parotta  and salna is a wonderful combination which cannot be beaten by anything else. I have posted parotta recipe already. Now it is time to post recipe for salna.

Last week was loaded with fun at home. Kid was at home for the whole week due to holidays for diwali and continuous rain. Parents and sis were also there. I became lazy as usual as mom took in charge of kitchen:)

I rendered a little help to her. Still the laziness has not gone. I had too many posts to write but I chose veg parotta salna for posting as it is an easy recipe. The ingredients list is too big but the instruction is quite simple. Yes, you can make the parotta salna quite easily and you can take rest actually. I make it for chapathi too and it tastes well.

Having raitha is an additional complement which can make the dinner a complete and tasty one. I have posted how to make amla raitha and capsicum raita to give a break from regular onion raita. I made vegetable salna for chapathi last time when I took the pictures.

3. Keep the stove in low flame. Cover it and cook till the potato gets boiled and the ground mixture gets cooked completely. The raw smell should go off completely. Stir occasionally to avoid the parotta salna getting stuck to the pan. It will take 15 minutes approximately.
