Onion and Cheese Paratha

My daughter wanted paratha for school lunch today. I had seen this recipe in Tarla Dalal’s website. It was something new and interesting. Made few changes in her recipe and made it today. It came out really well. It certainly is a good option for lunch box:)


Whole wheat flour – 11/2 cups

Finely chopped onions – 1 cup

Grated processed cheese – 1/2 cup

Chopped coriander leaves- 2 tbsps

Oil – 1 tsp

Melted ghee- 1 tbsp + as required for making the parathas

Pepper powder – 1/2 tsp

Cumin ( jeera) powder- 1 tsp

Garam masala powder- 1/2 tsp

Dry mango powder – 1/4th tsp

Salt to taste

Heat oil in a pan. Add the finely chopped onions. Sauté for till onions turn pink. Now add pepper powder, cumin powder, garam masala powder and dry mango powder and salt to taste. Mix well and sauté for few mins.

Cool this onion mixture. In a large bowl, add this mixture, while wheat atta, grated cheese, chopped coriander leaves and melted ghee. Mix very well. Add the required amount of water and knead to a smooth dough.

Rest the dough for 15-20 mins.

Roll it into parathas, shallow fry till both sides turn golden using ghee.
