Recipe Notes
  1. You can make this parathas without cooking the onions too. Just mix the chopped onion, green chilli,dhania jeera powder,haldi,chilli powder, garam masala,aamchoor powder,salt and coriander leaves together and take a tablespoon of mixture inside the rolled disc of paratha and spread and cook them. This is the authentic way.
  2. It is important that always the stuffing for parathas should be dry. Also the stuffing has to come to room temperature before filling. Else liquid will ooze out while rolling
  3. Keeping the inner stuffing ball little smaller helps in easier rolling.
  4. While rolling for the first time don’t give more pressure in the center as the filling is going to be placed in the center.Roll very gently and dust the flour as reqd.Centre be little thick and edges little thin.
  5. If you are a beginner, start preparing parathas with little quantity of filling and gradually increase the stuffing.
  6. If you are not too confident managing with the stuffed version , just mixing the stuffing with wheat flour while preparing the dough and roll it as you do for roti /chapathi.
  7. Below is a comparatively easier method for beginners, to make mess free parathas.

make small equal sized balls from dough. Roll out small round rotis from it.

Keep 2 teaspoons of stuffing in the center .Place another similar size of roti over it. Press the edges properly. ( like a sandwich )

slightly roll the rolling pin over the paratha and make it to the desired size and thickness.
