Keema Paratha


I was wondering the other day, Is there really anyone who does not like stuffed parathas? We are certainly not one of those.

The weather is trying to cross the side and getting colder by the day now, so I thought a little meat can do some good to make our bodies warm. I sound so old here......

Anyways, here is a simple recipe for keema paratha

Ingredients:

For filling:
1 cup ground chicken/turkey(Approx. 1/2 lb)
1 small red onion
2 green chilies
few sprigs of cilantro
salt as per taste
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp ground corriander
1 tbsp oil

For paratha:
1 cup wheat flour
salt as per taste

2 tbsp oil for making parathas

Heat the oil in a kadhai. Saute the finely chopped green chilies and onion. Add all the other spices and the ground chicken/turkey. Cook this mixture properly. Sprinkle finely chopped cilantro for garnishing and let the Keema cool.

After cooling, press the mixture with hands and take out all the excess moisture.Try to make sure to take out all the excess moisture as it makes rolling the parathas a little difficult and also makes the parathas messy after heating.

For making paratha: Roll a lemon sized dough in thick chapati. Keep around the same size of keema mixture in center of the chapati. Cover the keema mix with the rest of the chapati dough.Take out the extra dough. Roll the stuffed dough as chapati and roast on a heated griddle with oil/ghee.
