Bhujia Paratha

Bhujia Paratha Recipe

Bhujjia is a favourite evening snack, a quick bite with tea. It has a flavour which is addictive, and I know I cannot stop at one spoon.

Keeping that in mind , I have tried to create the paratha, mixed a few more things and crushed it so the stuffing is rollable as a paratha.

By Serves: 4 Prep Time: 10 mins Cooking Time: 10 mins

Ingredients

For the Paratha dough

  • 2 cups of whole wheat flour
  • Water to knead the dough
  • Salt to taste

For the Stuffing

  • 1.5 cups of bhujia
  • 1 medium finely chopped onion
  • 2 finely chopped green chillies
  • Half cup of finely chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 tsp chaat masala
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

For the Paratha

1

Take the flour in a bowl

2

Knead a soft dough, like the way we do it for chapattis or any other stuffed paratha

3

Leave it to rest for a while approx. 10-15 mins

For the Stuffing

4

Crush the bhujiasev as much as you can. Do not make it a powder, just enough so that they do not tear open the paratha while rolling. Although a little tear here and there just enhances a paratha, I think.

5

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.

6

Your paratha mix is ready.

Let’s make the Paratha now

7

Make about 8 equal balls from the dough

8

Take a ball of dough and roll it on a rolling pan till about 3-4 inches in diameter

9

Add a couple of spoons of the stuffing in the centre.

10

Pull the ends of the rolled paratha over the stuffing and seal it properly. Remove any excessive dough if required.

11

Make this into a ball again

12

Roll it to about 6 inches in size or to whatever best size you can manage

13

Heat up a tava

14

Put the rolled paratha on the tava and cook on medium heat on both sides

15

Once the paratha is cooked, increase the heat and apply some butter to the paratha on both sides and fry on both sides

16

Bring it down from the fire and serve

Notes

This paratha goes well with green mint chutney.
