Add all the spice powder, finely chopped coriander leaves and salt needed. If you do not have kitchen king masala, you can skip it but I recommend it for added taste.

Cook on medium heat until all the moisture evaporates and the mixture is dry. Leave it to cool.

how to make soya keema paratha


In a bowl, mix together whole wheat flour or multigrain flour, salt and oil. Add warm water little at a time and make a smooth dough just as you prepare for chapati. You can check my how to make chapati for more details.

Divide the dough into 6 equal parts and make smooth balls. Take 1 ball and roll it out into a circle of 4 inch in diameter dusting wheat flour.

Take another ball and roll it out into a circle of 4 inch diameter dusting wheat flour. Now we have 2 small rolled out dough.

preparing dough for paratha

Spread 1 - 1 1/2 tbsp of  soya keema mixture on a rolled out dough. Cover it with another rolled out dough and press the edges so the both will stick together well as shown in the picture below.

Heat a tawa, when it hot, place the rolled out keema stuffed paratha on it.

When you find bubbles on the surface, apply a tsp of butter or oil (or butter + oil mix) on the top and flip it over to the other side.

Apply another tsp of oil/butter on the other side also and cook both sides until golden spots appear.

Remove from tawa and serve hot. Repeat the same process for the rest of the dough.
