Masala Paratha is a different kind of stuffed flatbread. It is spicy and ideal for lunch or dinner.

Parathas are tasty and loved by all. They are ideal as breakfast, lunch, dinner or even brunch. They need no much accompaniments and most of all, the younger generation loves them.

Which is your favourite paratha? I have earlier shared Methi Paratha, mint paratha and the last one was potato and pea paratha. My children are happy when I make them, it’s a win-win situation for me.

Masala parathas are spicy and different. They are ideal for lunch or dinner.

Masala Paratha is spicy and different from the usual ones. The filling is a powder that is prepared and the making of it, I will be showing you now. I have put a step by step collage of the making, it will help in clearly understanding. These parathas are made in square shape unlike others.

Let’s get cooking Masala Paratha:

Ingredients:

For the dough :

  • 2 cup wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoon ghee
  • salt to taste
  • water

For the filling:

  • 1 teaspoon fennel seed
  • 1 teaspoon carom seed
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder
  • salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala

Other ingredients:

  • coriander leaves chopped
  • oil for roasting
  • flour for dusting

Method:

  1. Take the flour in a bowl, add ghee and salt. Rub it well. Add water and knead to a stiff dough. Keep it covered for sometime.
  2. Grind the fennel seed, rub the carom seed between palm and mix it. Add chilli powder, garam masala and salt to it. This is the filling.
  3. Take a ball of dough, roll it into a thin circle, take a spoonful of the prepared stuffing, put it in the centre and spread it, take care, do not take it to the edges. Put some chopped coriander over it.
  4. Now, put one side and then the other. Check the picture below which I have put. Then roll it more than half and the other side covers it.
  5. Roll this into a square shaped paratha.
  6. Smear oil and turn to the other side, cook until golden spots are visible.
  7. Serve hot with pickle.

    Simple and quick one to make. I add spices directly to dough and prepare it sometimes. Next time will try this way.

    Love this easy peasy recipe of masala paratha. I added all spices in my paratha which you mentioned but never tried with fennel seeds, I am sure they taste amazing while adding fennel into paratha. Will try it.
