Ingredients

  • 1 cup Whole wheat flour
  • ¾ cup Water
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon Red chilli flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon Dried oregano

Instructions

  • Make the filling: In a small mixing bowl, add the shredded cheese and spices. Mix well so that the cheese is covered in the spices.
    1 cup Mozzarella cheese, 1 teaspoon Garlic powder, ½ teaspoon Red chilli flakes, ¼ teaspoon Dried oregano
  • Prepare the dough: In a larger mixing bowl, whisk together whole wheat flour and a small pinch of salt. Add in half the water, and start combining with your hands. Continue to add water until the dough has formed into a ball. You do not want the dough to be overly sticky, but it will be a little bit soft.
    1 cup Whole wheat flour, ¼ teaspoon Salt, ¾ cup Water
  • Rest the dough: Let the dough rest for 10-15 minutes before rolling it out.
  • Section the dough: Section off the rested dough into four. Roll each section into a ball. Dust the dough ball in some whole wheat flour, and roll flat into a small circle.
  • Stuff the paratha: Place a quarter of the cheese mixture into the middle of the dough. Bring the edges of the dough up, and form into a ball.
  • Form the paratha: Dust the stuffed dough ball with some additional flour, and roll out carefully into a circle. You will want the finished rolled out paratha to be a little bit thinner than ⅛ of an inch.
  • Cook: Heat a cast iron skillet or an iron tawa if you have one, over medium heat. Place the rolled out paratha on the hot skillet, without oil. Let the paratha get lightly brown on one side, and then flip.

Notes

  • You may not need all the water when making the dough. Start with less, as you can always add more, but you can't take it out!
  • If you prefer a more crisp exterior, spray the paratha with avocado oil spray, or spread with butter after flipping. Then flip the paratha again to let the oil crisp it up.
