Margherita Paratha

I am sure everyone knows where I got the word Margherita from. Yes, from the Pizza. I would call this paratha an outside – in pizza (hope that makes sense)

Here is my recipe for the same

Margherita Paratha

Print Recipe
By Serves: 4

Ingredients

For the Paratha dough

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

For the Stuffing

  • 200 gms mozzarella cheese grated
  • 1 tsp of mixed herbs
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • Ready Pizza Sauce
  • 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

Take the grated cheese

5

Sprinkle the herbs and black pepper

6

Mix well

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 teaspoon of pizza sauce and spread it on the rolled dough (just a little not much or else you may not be able to roll the paratha at all)

10

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

11

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

12

Make this into a ball again

13

Roll it to about 6 inches in size or to whatever best size you can manage. Ensure there are no holes in the paratha, coz if the cheese slips out on the girdle, it will mess up the entire preparation.

14

Heat up a tava

15

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

16

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

17

Bring it down from the fire and serve

18

Your Outside In pizza is ready

Notes

This tastes good by itself. No accompaniments are necessary.
