Tried and tasted by Nivedita
This is second time happened with me in this week. I started making something and ended up with other.
Day before yesterday, I kneaded the atta to make Phulkas. Mom was cutting onions for making Gram flour omelet. And suddenly I remembered I had to switch off the fridge, as next day the technician was about to come for a minor repair. I had a full big cheese ball inside the freezer. That is why I changed my plan from making phulkas and omelet to Onion and Cheese Paratha. It is a common recipe, but I love to have it any time as it is healthy and keeps you full for longer time.
Coming to the recipe,
Wheat flour - 1 cup
Oil - 1 tbsp
Curds - 1 tsp
Sugar - 1/2 tsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Water to knead the dough.
Mix all the ingredients in a vessel or plate except water. Keep on adding water to make it in to soft dough. Keep it aside for 10 to 15 minutes.
Onion - 1 big, chopped finely
Oil - 1/2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Red chilly powder - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Heat oil in kadai, add onion and fry till light brown. Add salt, red chilly powder and Coriander powder. Fry for another half a minute.
Cheese(Mozzarella) - 1/2 cup, grated
Oil to roast paratha(1/2 tsp for each paratha)Method:
- Divide the dough into small equal parts.
- Take two balls for one paratha. Roll these into small chapati size.(Can see in the photo below)
- Keep one chapati on a rolling board.
- Take one tbsp of onion masala and spread it on the chapati
- Spread one tbsp or more(if you love cheese!) grated cheese on it.
- Cover it with one more ready chapati. Press on the sides.
- Roll into little bigger paratha so that the stuffed masala spreads equally.
- Heat tawa and fry the paratha on both the sides with little oil.
Serve with pickle or just roll it and give it to kids.
My both the kids enjoyed the rolls a lot.
