For the dough

  • 2 cup wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoon ghee
  • salt
  • water

For the stuffing

  • 1 teaspoon carom seed
  • 1 teaspoon fennel
  • 1 teapoon chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon pepper powder
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • salt

Other Ingredients

  • coriander leaves finely chopped
  • wheat flour for dusting
  • oil for roasting


  1. Take the flour in a bowl, add ghee and salt. Rub it well. Add water and knead to a stiff dough. Keep it covered for sometime.

  2. Grind the fennel seed, rub the carom seed between palm and mix it. Add chilli powder, garam masala and salt to it. This is the filling.

  3. Take a ball of dough, roll it into a thin circle, take a spoonful of the prepared stuffing, put it in the centre and spread it, take care, do not take it to the edges. Put some chopped coriander over it.

  4. Now, put one side and then the other. Check the collage that I have shared earlier. Then roll it more than half and the other side covers it.

  5. Roll this into a square shaped paratha.
  6. Smear oil and turn to the other side, cook until golden spots are visible.
  7. Serve hot with pickle, green chutney or curd.
