Stuffed Makkai Palak Parathas

Here is another delicious paratha recipe. As you can tell the variations are endless.


 For The Dough
1 cup maize flour (makai ka atta).
I used Masa Harina that is easily available at most grocery stores.

1/4 cup chopped spinach (palak)
1 tsp finely chopped green chillies
2 tsp oil
Salt to taste
1/4 tsp oil for kneading

To Be Mixed Into A Stuffing
1/2 cup grated paneer
1/4 cup boiled and crushed green peas
1/4 cup finely chopped coriander (dhania)
salt to taste

Other Ingredients
whole wheat flour for rolling
oil for cooking
butter for serving


For the dough

Combine all ingredients together in a bowl and knead into a soft dough using enough water. Keep aside.

Knead again using oil till smooth and divide the dough into 4 equal portions.

 Roll out each portion into 100 mm. (4") diameter circles using a little wheat flour for rolling.

 How to proceed

 Divide the stuffing into 4 equal portions and keep aside.

Place a dough circle on a clean, dry surface and place one portion of the stuffing in the center, fold the edges over the stuffing to make a square.

 Press it lightly to seal the stuffing, flatten the dough and roll out again into a square of 125 mm. (5") using a little flour for rolling.

Heat a tava (griddle) and cook the paratha on both sides, using a little oil till both sides turn golden brown in color.

 Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make 3 more parathas. Serve hot with a dollop of butter.


In the dough, instead of spinach, you can add chopped greens like shredded cabbage, fenugreek leaves etc for a variation.

 Try adding tofu and mint in the stuffing instead of paneer and let me know how it turns out!

Until next time......... XOXO
