Mini Chilli Cheese Paratha | How to make Chilli Cheese Paratha | #Breadbakers

In this version of #Breadbakers, we have Sue hosting us on Cheesy Breads. Although am not a great fan of cheese, my kids enjoy the ocassional treat in bakes or as cheese slices in their burgers / sandwiches. My husband actually loves Cheese with his Wine, and prefers to eat cheese off a cheese platter rather than on his pizza 🙂

For me, personally I love Chilli and Cheese as a combo. I have used 2 different chillies (green chilli, chilli flakes) in these mini Parathas (unleavened Indian flatbreads). My elder girl is quite the Paratha lover in the family, so we keep making these for Sunday lunch  / weekday dinner. A simple yoghurt and / or Indian spicy pickle is suffize to dip these mini parathas. She loved carrying these mini treats for her snack at school, and this is surely a great way to sneak in some protein for hungry kids ! Lets get to the recipe.

Mini Chilli Cheese Parathas | Cuisine : Indian | Course : Breakfast / Brunch | Spice level : Medium to high

For the outer Cover:

  • Wholewheat flour – 1.5 cups (1 cup = 200 ml)
  • Salt – to taste
  • Ajwain / crushed carrom seeds – 1/8 tsp
  • Oil – 2 tsp + more required to cook the paratha (approx 1 tsp/ paratha)
  • Warm water – to knead the dough 




  • Grated Processed Cheese (or Mozarella) – 1/2 cup
  • Minced Green chillies – 1 tsp (adjust spice)
  • Minced fresh Oregano – 2 TBSP
  • Minced green peppers – 2 tbsp (I skipped this)
  • Salt – to taste
  • Red chilli flakes- 1/3 tsp (or to taste)
  • Italian seasoning – 1/4 tsp
  • Chaat Masala – 1/8 tsp 


How to:

Make a slightly stiff dough with the ingredients , cover and keep for an hour atleast ( I make this overnight and bring to room temperature just before making the parathas)

In another bowl, mix all ingredients for stuffing. Go easy on the salt as the cheese has excess salt. 

Pinch out a portion of the dough and Roll two discs of 6 inch each. Place a tsp or two of the stuffing inside one of the discs, close with the other disc. Scrimp the edges with a fork, heat a tava / skillet and pan fry the paratha on both sides till golden brown with  tsp of oil. 

Serve hot or pack once cooled for kids’ lunchbox 🙂
