·  Aloo Ki Sabzi / Aloo Sabji  
·  Rajasthan Kaddu Ki Subzi / Pumpkin Subzi

When I was browsing in google for a quick rajasthani recipe, I came across this paratha..And I know this is what I going to do to end up this season..And I made it just now and it was so yummy..I totally loved it..The Onion Flavour in this is so mild and not over powering at all..Since you cook it in a slow flame the onion gets cooked inside too..So try it soon..

This is my DAY 7 recipe for BM which falls in the theme Seven days of Rajasthani Recipes….Hope you like it and let me know what you think..


For Dough:
Wheat Flour / Atta – 2 cups
Salt to taste
Water – as needed
Oil – 1 tsp to smear on top
Oil / Ghee to cook the Paratha

For Filling:
Onion – 1 chopped Finely
Green Chilli – 1 chopped finely
Chilli Powder – 1 tsp
Garam Masala Powder – 1 tsp
Cumin Powder / Jeera Podi – 1 tsp
Chat Masala Powder -1 tsp
Cumin Seeds / Jeera – ½ tsp
Ajwain / Omam – ¼ tsp (Optional)
Coriander Seeds / Malli – 1 tsp
Salt to taste


In a mixing bowl add flour, salt and mix well..Slowly add in water and make a soft dough. Now apply a tsp of oil and rub all over the top. Cover it and let it rest for 15 mins.

Mix everything given for the filling in a bowl and set aside.

Divide the dough into equal portions. Take one dough and flatten it out..Now spoon some filling in the center and seal from all sides. Finish the entire dough like this.

Now take the stuffed ball and slowly roll it so that filling doesn’t leak out. Form into a  slightly thick paratha.

Heat a tawa and drop the paratha on it and cook for 1 min on one side. Flip over and apply some ghee on top and flip over and cook on both sides till golden brown.Cook on a slow flame for about 3 mins on one side, so that the onions gets cooked too..

  47. I'm an hard core fan of ur receipes,i always wanted to try parathas,seeing ur pictures I'm on d go....I would like to give a small suggestion,plz avoid using plastic cookware in any stage ,even though it may be written microwave safe in d long run it will bring health hazards..it's gud to use glass or stainless steel ones.Just a suggestion!
