Spring Onion Paratha

Spring Onion Paratha

By

Spring Onion Paratha is a delicious whole-wheat flatbread made with fillings consisting of spring-onions, ginger, and green chilies paste. I was first introduced to the Spring Onion Paratha during my days in Mumbai and it stayed in my heart since then. Out of the blue, I recently remembered this Paratha and immediately got down to rolling some out.

Spring onions form a huge part of several cuisines across the world. Incorporating it into Indian flatbreads can not only be exciting but enjoyable too. It can be served as a powerful breakfast as it is packed with Vitamins and other minerals or a light dinner with plain yogurt, raita, or pickle. I hope you enjoy this typical homemade recipe.
