Masala Paratha

TSh 5,000

Masala Paratha is a flavorful and spiced Indian flatbread that’s packed with delicious masala-infused goodness. It’s a popular variation of plain paratha, where the dough is seasoned with a blend of aromatic spices and herbs to elevate its taste.

To prepare Masala Paratha, whole wheat flour (atta) is combined with water and a pinch of salt to make a soft, pliable dough. Along with the flour, a mixture of finely chopped onions, green chilies, fresh cilantro (coriander leaves), and a medley of spices is incorporated into the dough.

The spices commonly used in Masala Paratha include cumin powder, coriander powder, turmeric, red chili powder, garam masala, and sometimes chaat masala for an extra kick of flavor. The amount of spices can be adjusted according to personal preference for spice levels.

Once the dough is kneaded and well-mixed, it’s divided into small balls and rolled out into thin circles. Each circle is brushed with ghee or oil and cooked on a hot griddle (tawa) until golden brown and crispy on both sides.

The key to a delicious Masala Paratha lies in the balance of spices and the flakiness of the layers. The spiced dough creates a delightful flavor profile, making Masala Paratha a perfect accompaniment to a wide range of Indian dishes such as curries, dals (lentil dishes), or enjoyed on its own with yogurt, pickles, or chutneys.
