Vegetable Paratha Recipe-Mixed Veg Paratha-Vegetable Stuffed Paratha

This is a very healthy, nutritious and wholesome breakfast with the goodness of vegetables. Next to aloo parathas and gobi paratha, this is our family's favorite paratha. It can also be packed for lunch as it remains very soft even hours later. Perfect for kid's breakfast, lunch box and snack box. There is no need for any special side dish for this paratha as it is very tasty on its own. If required, you can have it with curd or pickle or just a simple raita. Today we will learn how to make vegetable stuffed paratha following this easy recipe.

In a bowl, mix together wheat flour, salt and oil. Add water, little at a time and prepare a soft and pliable dough just as you make for chapati. Grease your hands with 1/4 tsp oil and knead it well. Keep it covered. Let it sit for 10-15 minutes. In the meantime, we will prepare the stuffing for the paratha.

Pressure cook potatoes and peas. Mash potatoes well and grind peas to a paste. Mix mashed potato and peas together and keep it aside.

Finely chop onions, carrot, cabbage and coriander leaves. You can use the onion chopper or food processor for chopping the vegetables finely.

Once cooled, make balls out of the mixture. You will get one or two balls extra. Do not worry.You can keep leftover stuffing  in the refrigerator and use it the next day.

Now make even sized ball out of the paratha dough. Roll out the ball into a small circle dusting wheat flour.

Dust wheat flour and roll out the sealed dough (with the sealed side on the top) into a circle just as you do for chapati but without applying too much pressure. Repeat the same process for the rest of the dough.

mixed Veg paratha

Heat a tawa and put the rolled out paratha on it. When you see bubbles forming on the top, spread a tsp of oil all over the paratha and flip it over to the other side. Spread another 1/2 tsp of oil on the other side and cook well until  brown spots appear on both the sides.

  6. Hi I tried this receipe and it came out well but I hv a lot of leftover veggie left can u suggest a receipe to use it my family doesn't wish to hv a parata again.

    1. You can make veg bonda or you can mix it with little leftover rice, make a dough, dip it in maida slurry, roll it in bread crumbs and deep fry to make a snack.

  7. hi paddu, my parathas are breaking.
    I observed that while rolling, the mixture is popping out and the dough is breaking. Im guessing because of too much moist . Please tell me some tips to correct this

    1. The stuffing should be a little dry. So cook until all the moisture evaporates or follow the method mentioned in my Gobi Paratha .

  8. Im trying new receipes from ur port. Lemme try this too. Ur website is very much useful n userfriendly. Thank u n my best wishes for to continue with d best receipes.
