Chicken Paratha

Thinking of what to cook for lunch for the kids is a problem faced by me every day. Kids being not too keen on rice and curries, make me innovative. Today's lunch was chicken parathas. I could not take any photographs as Aby took the camera with him on his official tour. I will try to take the photograph the next time I cook these parathas. These parathas are yummy to eat and will also help you to finish the left over chicken in the fridge.

Ingredients for the filling:

  1. Ginger - 1/2 inch thinly sliced
  2. Chicken breasts - 250 gms boiled and minced
  3. Green chillies - 2 thinly sliced
  4. Onion - 1 thinly cubed
  5. Tomato - 1 cubed small
  6. Chicken masala or garam masala -1/2 tsp.
  7. a few coriander leaves cut small
  8. salt as per taste
  9. A little oil to fry parathas

Ingredients for Parathas:

  1. White bread flour or wheat flour - 3 cups
  2. Salt as per taste
  3. 1 tblsp. oil
  4. Warm water

Method:-

  • Mix the flour, salt and oil. Add the warm water and make into a pliable dough, fit for rolling and keep it aside.
  • Take a tblsp. of oil in a heated pan. Saute the onions, ginger and green chillies until lightly brown. Add the minced chicken, garam masala, tomato, salt and coriander leaves. Saute and mix for a minute or two until it is mixed properly. Take it off the heat.
  • Now divide the dough into four equal parts and further divide each part into half. Take each half and roll into a small round of 12 cms.
  • Place a little of the chicken mixture and spread it on one of the rounds. Take another round and cover the mixture and seal it from the sides. Now roll this double rounds into a bigger round of 20 cms.
  • Heat up a heavy bottomed pan and put a little oil and slip the made paratha into it, cooking it evenly on both the sides.
  • Do the same with the other parathas and serve it warm with pickles or anything of your choice.
