For the dough
1/2 cup whole wheat flour (gehun ka atta)
1 tbsp oil
salt to taste

For the filling
1/2 cup crumbled paneer (cottage cheese)
2 tbsp masoor (whole red lentil), cooked
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp grated ginger (adrak)
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder (haldi)
1 tsp coriander (dhania) powder
2 tbsp chopped coriander (dhania)
1 tbsp oil
salt to taste

Other Ingredients
oil for cooking


    For the dough

    1. Combine all the ingredients and knead into a soft dough using enough water.
    2. Cover with a wet cloth and keep aside for 10 to 15 minutes.

    For the filling

    1. Heat the oil and saute the onion till it turns translucent.
    2. Add the paneer, masoor, ginger, chilli powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, coriander and salt and mix well.
    3. Cool, divide into 4 parts and keep aside.

    How to proceed

    1. Divide the dough into 4 equal parts and roll out each portion very thinly into circiles of 250 mm. (10") diameter.
    2. Put one portion of the stuffing in the centre of each paratha and fold all the sides in such a way so as to form a rectangle.
    3. Make a paste using a little flour and water and use this to seal the edges of the paratha.
    4. Place the paratha on a tava (griddle) with the open edge at the bottom. Cook for a few minutes, turn over on the other side and cook again till crispy, using a little oil.
    5. Repeat for the remaining dough and filling to make 3 more parathas.
    6. Serve hot with curds.
