Ingredients for Stuffed Paratha :

  • Whole wheat flour (or Atta Flour) – 2 cups
  • Salt – to taste
  • Oil – 1 Tbsp
  • Warm water – 1/2 cup
  • Stuffing – 1 cup

How to Make Stuffed Paratha :

  1. Mix the flour, salt and water. Knead the dough to a soft texture. If the dough is little sticky, it gives very soft parathas. Do not make it too sticky, else you will have difficulty rolling.
  2. Spread few drops of oil over the dough to prevent it from drying. Cover it with moist kitchen towel and let it rest for 1 hour. This makes the dough very pliable.
  3. Knead the dough again and make lemon sized balls.
  4. Dip each ball into dry flour and roll out into a small circle using a rolling pin.The edges should be thinner than the center.
  5. Place a tbsp of stuffing in the center. Bring all the edges of the rolled out dough to the center so it covers up the stuffing. It looks like a small money bag now. Pinch off any excess dough on top.
  6. Seal it nicely and press it again to form a circle. Roll it out with your hands or with a rolling pin.
  7. If small bubbles appear just prick it. If some stuffing pops out, just add some flour and roll again.
  8. Place a griddle on the stove at medium-high heat and apply oil/ ghee. When the oil is hot, put the rolled out paratha on it.
  9. While light brown spots appear, flip and let it cook. Drizzle some more ghee on top. Cook till brown spots appear on both sides.
  10. Remove and store in airtight container to keep it soft till you eat. Serve with yogurt and pickle.
