Masala Onion Paratha (whole wheat flat breads)

Masala Onion Paratha |

Who wouldn’t want to have these lovely delicious parathas with tea in the morning breakfast? I made a small twist this time and first sauteed all the masala with oil and then used this fried masala to make the dough. Good part it since we are adding veggies inside the dough, it creates and soft dough even if we use very less oil in kneading it. These turned out very tasty. The recipe is worth sharing and trying 🙂

Makes 7-8 Parathas

Chapati flour : 2 cups
Onion : 1-2 large finely chopped
Mexican small green chillis : 6-7 finely chopped (I liked it on a bit higher spicy side)
Garlic : 3 cloves finely chopped
Cilantro : finely chopped 1 cup
Mustard seeds : 1 teaspoon
Cumin seeds : 1 teaspoon
Asafoetida : 1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Oil : 1 tbsp
Oil for frying paratha.


  • Heat oil in a pan
  • Add mustard seeds and let them crackle. Add cumin and asafoetida.
  • Add onions, chilis, and garlic. Saute it for 30 seconds. Add salt to taste and mix well. Switch off the stove and let the mixture cool.
  • Take flour in a large bowl, add any additional salt required other than the one in the onion mixture.
  • Add coriander. Knead into a soft dough with your hands.


  • Divide the dough into 8 equal portions.


  • Roll into thick parathas and fry them by applying little oil on both the sides.
  • Serve hot with curd or tea.
