tomato paratha recipetomato paratha recipe | tamatar ka paratha | tomato onion paratha with step by step photo and video recipe. paratha recipes have always been an integral part of north indian cuisine and are made for various occasions. typically the most popular paratha’s are the vegetable-based stuffed paratha. but then there are others where the vegetable puree is added directly to the wheat dough and tamatar paratha is one such variety.

the concept of tomato paratha maybe not common for many and may be skeptical to even try it. perhaps for most of them, the impression of paratha means a stuffed roti with mashed and spiced vegetables. well, i totally understand it and completely acknowledge it. but trust, me this is one of the easy and simple spiced roti and can be served for any purpose and occasions. i personally make it for my breakfast and serve it with either curd or pickle and you would never disappoint. in addition, i also try to experiment the recipe by adding other vegetable purees along with tomato. my personal favourite is palak and methi leaves and tomato puree which add the flavour of palak and tanginess of tomatoes. but i have not added in this recipe and it is not something everyone may prefer.

furthermore, some tips, suggestions and variations to the most flavoured tomato paratha recipe. firstly, i would heavily recommend to use ripe and juicy tomatoes to the masala paste. as matter of fact, you can also use the store bought tomato puree to make these tomato roti. secondly, i have used wheat flour to make the healthy roti. but the same roti or paratha can also be made with plain flour or maida. my personal preference is maida but i have used wheat to make it healthy and edible. lastly, i have tried to make these paratha flaky by rolling it with layers. but that is completely optional and you can just roll it like chapati without any extra effort.
