  4. Let it rest for 30 min.

For Stuffing :

  1. Heat oil in a pan. Add grated ginger and garlic.

  3. Cook for 3-4 min. Add spice powders ( red chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, amchur powder, turmeric, garam masala and salt)
  4. Combine everything together and saute for few minutes.
  5. Add chopped coriander leaves and turn off the heat. Let it cool down.

Making Paratha :

  2. Dust each ball with flour and roll it thick using a rolling pin.
  3. Place 2 Tbsp of stuffing in the middle.
  4. Carefully cover it. (See pic below)
  5. Roll it gently. Do not make it too thin. Then your stuffing will come out. Also use flour for dusting as needed.
  6. Repeat for all the parathas.
  7. Heat a tawa / griddle. When it is hot, place the paratha over it.

NOTES :

  • You can adjust the spices according to your taste.
  • Be careful while rolling the parathas. First roll it thick and place the stuffing. If you roll it thin, it will easily spill out the stuffing.
  • After stuffing, make sure you place the thick side ( dense dough) on the bottom. It prevents from sticking at the bottom.
  • Don’t skip oil while making parathas. Use little oil as needed.
  • Green chilli and garlic are optional.
