Stuffed Paratha, anyone?

30 Jul

This is something I cooked last evening. A paratha is simply  a flatbread that originated in South Asia. It is typically round in shape. I’ve modified it slightly to form an envelop of it so that chicken mince can be filled into it. Below is the recipe. Do try it and let me know if you like it 🙂




  • Chicken mince  (1 cup)
  • Salt  (to taste)
  • Black pepper powder (to taste)
  • Finely chopped onions (2-3 tablespoons)
  • Finely chopped coriander (1 tablespoon)
  • Roasted cumin seed powder (a pinch)
  • Finely chopped green capsicum (1-2 tablespoon)
  • Red chilli powder (to taste)
  • Oil (2-3 tablespoons)


  • White flour (2 cups)??????????
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Oil (1 teaspoon)
  • Water


  • Oil (for deep frying)
  • Ketchup or any other sauce
  • Wheat flour paste (dissolved in water)


Stir fry finely chopped onions and capsicum till soft. Add chicken mince to it and also add salt, black pepper powder and other spices. Cook on low flame till chicken mince is done. Sprinkle coriander and remove it from the stove. Allow the stuffing to cool down.

Knead a soft dough of white flour adding salt, oil and water and leave it for 15 mins to settle down. Now take a small ball of this dough and roll it into flattened bread. Place some stuffing at the centre of this flatbread and fold it like an envelop. Use wheat flour paste as adhesive. Pre-heat oil in a deep pan and fry the stuffed paratha till golden brown. Serve with ketchup or any other sauce.
