Soya Mince Paratha for Protein rich breakfast

Soya Mince paratha

Soyabean is often referred as Veg meat in our house. Mom used to cook the large chunks with large pieces of potatoes to make them taste exactly like meat. Taking that further, soyabean started getting available in granules and she converted it to taste like mutton kheema cooked with green peas and potatoes.

Believe me Soyabean rocks in whichever format you would like to eat it. I love the spicy Soya chunks pulao the most.

In the run for Innovative and different parathas, I thought of using the soya mince to make a veggie kheema paratha. So basically, a soyabean mince paratha.

Here is my attempt of making a paratha filling out of this.

For the Paratha


Take the flour in a bowl


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


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

For the Stuffing


Soak the soya granules in salted hot water for 5 mins


Drain the water and squeeze the granules almost dry.


Take a frying pan and put it up on the gas.


Heat the pan and add the oil to it.


Add the cumin seeds, curry leaves and grated ginger


Followed by onion and finely chopped green chillies


Saute till the onion is transparent.


Add the dry masalas and mix it well


After a min add the soyabean granules and mix well


Cook till all masalas are mixed and the mixture is dry.


Add the finely chopped coriander,garam masala and the lemon juice.


Mix well and let it cool.


Your paratha mix is ready.

Let’s make the Paratha now


Make about 8 equal balls from the dough


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


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


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


Make this into a ball again


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


Heat up a tava


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


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


Bring it down from the fire and serve


This paratha goes well with plain curd. It would also go well with a green mint chutney.
