Quick Onion Parathas

Parathas are quite favoured at home and these quick onion parathas are a great option for either breakfast or dinner. Makes an excellent lunch box item as it tastes good even while cold.

My elder one is quite fond of parathas over plain rotis / chapatis anyday. And she loved this too.

Do make this and let me know how you enjoyed it.
Similar parathas on the blog are:

This goes to Day 2 of BM 84 Tawa dishes - event hosted by Archana

Prep time : 15 mins, cooking time : 20 mins, makes : 6

Atta / wholewheat flour - 1 cup (1 cup= 240 ml)
Salt - to taste
oil - 3 tsp
onions grated - 1/2 cup
ajwain / carrom seeds - 1/2 tsp
turmeric - 1/2 tsp
besan / gramflour - 2 tbsp
chopped chillies, coriander leaves - to taste

sift flours, add salt, oil (2 tsp) and mix well. now add the rest of the ingredients except the oil. Add warm water and make to a semi soft dough. cover and rest for 10 mins.
heat tava, roll out small parathas or the size you prefer from each equal sized roundel.
Lay it on the tava, smear a little oil on both sides and cook till golden spots appear.
serve hot with any raita or pickle or simply with curd.

PS: you can add umpteen ingredients to this simple mix-n-make paratha. like paneer, methi, alu or simply any other vegetable. You may also saute the onions and use it as a fillign to make stuffed paratha. Either way, its yummy and quick. 


  1. Mixing all the ingredients while kneading the dough is a cool idea. It is easier to just roll it as is. I would prefer this to plain paratha anytime.

  2. Grating onion into the dough sounds such a simple idea which I haven't thought about :) Love the versatility of such parathas.

  3. That sounds like a very flavorful roti. Will try this one out some time.

  4. Whenever I am in hurry I make these kind of quick parathas. Parathas/flatbread came out so well.

  5. Wow, am in love with this quick onion parathas, grating onion to the dough is definitely a brilliant idea.

  6. This is a great recipe to make instead of stuffing the parathas. Stuffing and rolling is quite time consuming and this would be a great way to make parathas for kids for lunch boxes.

  7. I love parathas where you don't need to fill and roll, I always tend to fail at that! Hehe... These are just so simple for even breakfast...

  8. I love this roti and always used to make for myself when it was a nonveg dinner for others!..long time since I have made it, thanks for reminding me, your parathas are inviting!

  9. I sometimes make this onion paratha for our breakfast and we love it. Looks yum with pickle.

  10. Mostly, I add grated veggies to the flour itself to make parathas, instead of stuffing. Have'nt tried with onions though. Looks like a flavourful Paratha!
