Protein Rich Roti and Parathas Recipes

Why do we need Protein?

Be it an organ, tissue or cell – they all need protein. It’s even the building block of bones, muscles, skin as well as blood. Read about how much protein do we need at each stage of life.

5 main functions of protein are:

1.    Growth and development of body

2.   Repair and maintenance of cells and tissues

3.   Production of antibodies to fight diseases

4.   Transport of oxygen to different parts of the body

5.    Hormone production for various metabolic activities

Sources of Protein

The major sources of protein are dairy foods, dals, pulses, sprouts, nuts and a few cereals and veggies…. Know the Best Sources of Protein in detail.

To ensure adequate growth and maintenance you need to combine different food groups to ensure that the protein obtained from the diet is complete and of good quality. For example, you should complement cereals with other sources of proteins such as nuts, seeds, pulses and milk. Hence, you should not just randomly include proteins in your diet, but also understand the different sources of proteins better and use them in the right proportions and combination.

All-in-One Protein Rich Rotis and Parathas

Rotis and Parathas are our staple food. In most households either roti or paratha with a subzi is definitely been cooked as a daily fare. This section is an attempt to add protein rich sources like dals, cereals, paneer etc. to make them more nutritious choices like Paneer and Methi Roti, Paushtic Roti and Oats Flax Seeds Roti.

You can try all-in-one delicacies like Hariyali Tofu Roti and Paneer Spring Onion Paratha. If you closely look at these recipes, you will figure out that the trick here is to add one source of protein like to the regular wheat flour. And why restrict yourself to only tofu and paneer? Go with your own creativity and have variety each day. Try crushed sprouts to parboiled mashed dals when you have time on hand. Chilkewale Parathe with 5 gm of protein per paratha is a classic example of this.

Stuffed Protein Rich Parathas

These call for extra planning, effort and time as well. But they are the most delicious parathas you can make and serve. Try different tasty delicacies like Rajma Cheese Parathas, Nariyal Chane ke Parathe, Paneer Paratha and many more….

Cereals can be good source of protein too. One such priceless ingredient is Buckwheat. It is said to be a complete vegetarian protein containing all the essential 9 amino acids. Thus it would be worth indulging into Stuffed Buckwheat Paratha (6 g protein / paratha). This recipe has cheese in the stuffing. Those who want to avoid that excess fat can replace cheese with grated paneer. Read about Health Benefits of Buckwheat.

Sprouts Based Parathas – A Protein Treat

It is better to make use of sprouts rather than the original pulses, as sprouts increase the protein availability by over 30% and are also easier to digest. Paneer Carrot and Bean Sprouts Paratha and Mixed Sprouts Paratha are wholesome parathas filled with the goodness of protein.

Low Carb Protein Rich Bhakri

Wondering which flour can be used to make a low carb and high protein bhakri? Its devoid of flour… the only key ingredient here is almonds…. brimming with protein. The process involves soaking the almonds, peeling, blending, kneading into a dough, rolling and finally cooking. Learn the art of making these high protein, gluten-free Almond Bhakri.


Try different tasty delicacies of parathas like Nutritious Garlic Naans, Paneer Paratha, Soya Methi Theplas and many more….
