Servings 8 Paratha


For the Stuffing:

  • cup Soy granules (or TVP), soaked in hot water for 10 minutes and squeezed dry
  • 1 tsp Oil
  • 3~4 Scallions, finely chopped
  • ¼ tsp Ginger+garlic paste
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp Red Chili powder (adjust as per taste preference)
  • ¼ tsp Ground Cumin
  • ¼ tsp Ground Coriander
  • ½ tsp garam masala
  • To taste salt

For the Paratha:

  • 2 cups Atta (Wholewheat flour)
  • To taste salt
  • 1 tbsp Oil + more for cooking


Make the stuffing:

  • Heat oil in a pan; add the green onions, ginger+garlic paste and cook till the onions are tender. Add the drained soy granules and cook for 4~6 minutes.
  • Stir in turmeric, red chili powder, ground cumin, ground coriander, garam masala and salt. Mix well and cook for another 2 minutes. Set aside to cool.

Prep the dough:

  • In a medium mixing bowl; combine flour, salt and 1tbsp oil. Mix well and add just enough water to make a soft, pliable dough. Knead for 2~3 minutes. Cover and set aside for at least 15 minutes.

Make Paratha:

  • Divide the dough into 8 equal parts. Roll each part into a ball, flatten it slightly - place generous amount of stuffing in the middle. Cover the stuffing with the dough and flatten slightly. On a floured surface, roll out the stuffed dough into a disc. Make it as thin or thick as you like.
  • Cook on preheated tawa/ skillet, until brown spots form on one side, about 2 minutes. Gently flip and cook on the second side for another 2 minutes. Brush with oil or ghee while hot. Repeat with the remaining dough and stuffing. Serve immediately.
