Steps to prepare onion paratha

  • In a mixing bowl, add 1 cup wheat flour, pinch of salt and 3-4 tbsp. of water.

  • Rest it for 10 minutes.
  • Till the time, in another bowl add 1/2 cup chopped onion, 1/2 tsp. chili powder, 1/2 tsp. coriander powder, 1 tsp. chopped coriander powder, 1 green chilli finely chopped, 1/4 tsp. cumin seeds and salt as per taste. Mostly a pinch of salt is required as we have added salt in preparation of dough too.
  • Mix the above mixture completely.
  • Of the prepared dough, form three separate balls.
  • Use a rolling pin and flatten the ball in circular shape of about 2-3 inch diameter. Dust the ball with some flour so that it does not stick to the pin or the surface.
  • Take 2 tbsp. of the onion mixture and place it in the center of the prepared dough.
  • Bring all the edges of the dough to center and join them. Press down to flatten the edges.
  • Sprinkle the dough with some more flour and roll it to size of 6-7 inch diameter.
  • Meanwhile, heat the frying pan on a medium flame and cook the paratha on both the sides till 2-3 minutes, so the sides have been golden. Brush each side with some butter or ghee.
  • Serve onion paratha with yoghurt or tomato sauce or tea.


  • Adjust the spices as per your preference.
  • Chop the onions finely, as the larger prices will result in breakage while rolling the dough.
