Onion paratha

Ingredients (Serves 4):
For the dough:
3 cups atta(wheat flour)

For the stuffing:
1 medium sized onion - finely chopped
2 green chilli - finely chopped
5-6 sprigs of coriander - finely chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp ajwain seeds
1/4 tsp turmeric

3 Tbsp atta

1) Mix atta, 1 to 1 1/2 cups water, 2 Tbsp oil, 1 tsp salt to make the dough. Cover and keep aside
2) Mix ingredients for stuffing with 1/2 tsp salt. Keep aside for 5-10 minutes. Drain excess water.
3) Take a fistful of dough and roll it into a circle of about 6-7 cms. Place 1 tsp of the stuffing at the centre and cover it by bringing the edges of the dough together.
4) Roll it into a paratha, dabbing it in wheat flour as and when necessary.
5) Heat up a frying pan, place the paratha on it. Add a few drops of ghee on top. Flip to the other side in a minute.
6) Now add a few drops of ghee and flip to the other side once the underside is done.
7) Remove from pan and place it in a container - covered.
Serve with yogurt and pickle or coconut chutney :)

Tip: As I did not drain enough water from stuffing, while rolling it would become sticky. I used kitchen paper towel to dab the water and then apply some atta on it.
