Onion being my DDs favorite, I make this recipe quite often to satisfy her taste buds.
Here goes the recipe.
- For the filling
- Onions: 2 big finely chopped
- Jeera powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder: 1 tea spoon each
- Turmeric: a pinch
- Coriander: 1 small bunch, finely chopped
- Salt to taste
- Green chilies (optional, I did not use them since I was making it for my kids)
- Oil: 2 table spoons
- For the dough
- Wheat flour: 1 cup
- Salt to taste
- Warm water: ½ cup, to knead into a soft dough
- In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients for the dough, and make a soft dough. (same as any other chapatti). Set aside for half an hour with the lid closed so that it becomes soft.
- In a wide bottom pan, add 1 table spoon oil. Let it heat.
- Now add the onions and fry till its color changes to golden brown.
- Now add the spices: jeera, coriander and garam masala powders.
- Add a pinch of turmeric and salt to taste. Cook for about 5 minutes on low flame till the raw smell of the masalas leave.
- Smear with a generous bunch of coriander and give it a gentle stir.
- Let it cool.
- With the wheat dough that is prepared, make small balls.
- Keep the filling into it as shown and seal it from all the sides so that the stuffing does not spill out.
- Roll this into a round shaped, similar to chapatti or any other paratha. Use wheat flour for dusting, if it sticks to the rolling pin.
- On a tawa, roast this paratha, by appling one table spoon of oil on both the sides. (You can also use butter)
- Serve hot with tomato sauce.
