Cheese capsicum paratha

I wanted to prepare something special yet fast for today's lunch. I had come across this recipe in various blogs and decided to alter the ingredients according to my preference and then give it a try! So here is the recipe for an easy and yummy paratha, that can be prepared in a jiffy!

  • Whole wheat flour/Atta - 1 cup
  • Water - as needed
  • Salt - as needed
  • Capsicum - 1 , finely chopped
  • Cheese - 1/2 cup, grated (I used mozzarella)
  • Onion - 1 small, finely chopped
  • Pepper powder - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Oil - for pan fry

  1. Mix whole wheat flour, salt and water and knead into a soft dough. Keep it aside
  2. Mix capsicum, onion, grated cheese and pepper powder
  3. Divide the dough into equal balls
  4. Flatten one ball and fill a teaspoon of the prepared capsicum-cheese mixture, close the ball and roll into thick parathas on a flour dusted surface
  5. Heat a pan and cook the parathas evenly on both sides by adding little oil
  6. Serve hot with curd and pickle of your choice! 
  • You can replace pepper powder with chilli flakes/chilli powder
  • Onion can be omitted
  • You can add different colored capsicums
