Parantha's were normally made for breakfast when we were growing up. They used to so filling and satisfying. Have a healthy breakfast is so important, but these days it just a bowl of cereal and off to work. Hubby dear loves parantha's, does not matter what the filling is. This spicy and crunchy Parantha is one of our favorites.


Wheat Dough
2 cups wheat flour
1 tsp red chili powder
salt to taste
1 tbsp oil
water for kneading

1 cup cabbage, chopped
1/4 cup onions, chopped
2 green chillies, chopped
handful fresh coriander leaves, chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp red chili powder
1/2 tsp mango powder
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
few curry leaves, chopped
1 tsp oil
salt to taste.


  1. Mix the Wheat flour, red chili powder, salt and oil. Knead into a stiff dough using water. Cover and keep aside
  2. Heat oil in a pan, add the cumin seeds, once they splutter add the curry leaves.
  3. Add all the dry masalas.
  4. Quickly add the onions and cabbage. Mix well.
  5. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. (Cook for longer if you want the cabbage to be cooked more)
  6. Add coriander leaves and keep aside.

To Make the Parantha
  1. Make a tennis size ball of the dough.
  2. Roll it to for about 10 cm round.
  3. Place about 2 tbsp of the cabbage filling in the center.
  4. Fold the dough from the sides to cover the filling.
  5. Seal the top well.
  6. Flatten it and roll again.
  7. Heat a tawa, place the parantha and cook on medium flame, once the side down is cooked a bit about 1 minute, turn and cook this side completely. Add a tsp of oil or ghee and turn and cook this side completely.
  8. Serve with pickle, ketchup, chutney or curds.
