Onion Paratha-Pyaaz ka Paratha
Whole wheat flour-1 cup
Onion- 3-4 medium size
Red chilli powder-1 tsp
Coriander powder- 1 tsp
Cumin powder-1/2 tsp
Garam masala powder-3/4 tsp
Coriander leaves finely chopped -2 tbsp
Oil -1 tbsp for dough
Oil for making parathas
Wheat flour for dusting
Add red chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, garam masala, coriander leaves to the onions and mix well.
Make lemon sized balls out of it.
Divide the dough into 5 equal parts, shape it into a ball and flatten it. Have some wheat flour ready for dusting.
Take 1 flattened dough, dust it with a little wheat flour and roll it out into a small thick circle.
Place a ball of onion stuffing, gather all the corners and close it. Seal it well and press it flat. (picture below)
Dusting flour, roll out the sealed dough into a circle of approximately 6 inches in diameter just as you roll out chapati.
Serve hot with pickle or dahi/curd or chutney.
Combine together wheat flour, onion mixture, 2 tsp oil and prepare a soft pliable dough adding water little at a time. Then roll it out and prepare just like chapati.

Thanks Padhu for the wonderful recipe. This was hit at my house.
I was preparing onion paratha for the first time and everybody applauded the effort. The onion tomato chutney (from you site off course) was a great side for the parathas
Superb recipes…..lovd d presentation part
Hi Padhu thanks much for the recipe. The parathas came out pretty tasty. One quick question though.. I packed it for lunch and paratha became much harder than it was in the morning.. i havent had this problem when i pack plain chapathis/fulkas.. any tips pls?
Thank you for liking my recipe. When packing for lunch, apply a little melted ghee on the parathas and pack/wrap it in aluminium foil. It will stay soft until lunch.
Easy and tasty recipe and found the second method better with a slight variation in it. Instead of using raw onion, I slightly fried itvis oil with the masalas and mixed with the wheat dough…..
