    I had heard and made various stuffed paranthas for my family, onion paranthas gave me a pleasant surprise and a much appreciated change in my menu. Thanks.

    sounds intersting !! onions should be fine cut or chopped ? Thanks



    hi pooja,you can use atta instead of maida but the taste will differ and I think maida tastes better.

    Instead of using maida, use regular whole wheat atta. It's more healthier and easy to digest. Plus you can make all parathas with regular wheat flour. No need to add maida.
