masala paratha recipemasala paratha recipe | spicy paratha | how to make masala parantha with step by step photo and video recipe. paratha recipes are very common across india and are made with different ingredients. in addition, it can also be made with 2 major types of the parantha. basically, one is stuffed and the other is mixed to the dough. masala paratha recipe is one such flatbread which falls to the later where spices are mixed directly to the wheat dough.

well, i have posted quite a few traditional parantha recipes with vegetable-based stuffing. but these days i have moved to the easier way of making paratha recipes. i personally feel, mixing the vegetable stuffing directly to bread dough is much easier compared to stuff inside the dough and also roll it after that. particularly it can be a nightmare for the novice cook. having said that the same logic cannot be applied for all the vegetables. for example, potatoes or cauliflower is better of stuffed inside rather mixing it. in other words, the logic of mixing the stuffing directly to dough has to be made wisely. particularly the hard shaped veggies are better off if made the traditional way.

anyway, i would like to conclude with few tips, suggestions and variations for a perfect masala paratha recipe. firstly, in this recipe, i have added spices to the wheat dough, but it can also be made with other flours too. particularly it can be made with besan flour, plain flour and even with corn flour too. secondly, on top of spices, you can also add vegetable based puree with spices. you can add leafy vegetable puree like spinach, methi and also dill leaves too. lastly, these parathas generally do not require any additional side dishes. hence you can plan this flatbread while travelling and top it up with pickle or chatni pudi and ghee.
