Onion and Cheese Paratha Recipe


Parathas are one of the most common breakfast recipes. This staple bread from the Indian cuisine is wholesome and quite filling. Parathas are teamed up with Indian curry or with curd, chutney or pickle. An Indian meal is incomplete without a paratha.

However, when we think of paratha, we miss our mom's for their plain as well as stuffed parathas. Also known as Indian bread, parathas are very popular and are healthy too because they are made with whole wheat flour. In most of the north Indian houses, you will find a plate full of ghee spread parathas on the dining table. Apart from making plain parathas, you can stuff them and enjoy a tasty and filling breakfast. Lets take a look at the recipe to prepare onion and cheese paratha.

Onion and cheese paratha recipe with peppers:

  • In a bowl, add wheat flour and all purpose flour. Sprinkle little salt, black pepper powder and pour 1tbsp ghee. Now add the sauted onions and grated cheese to it.
