Onion Paratha


Onion Paratha is a simple & delicious traditional dish which includes smashed onion &very less Indian spices to enhance the flavor. There are different types of parathas made of potato, tomato, fenugreek/ methi leaves etc….. but in all easiest to make is onion paratha. There are different methods to make Onion paratha…my family doesn’t love the raw taste of onion so I made it in my way with less spices & giving more importance to health. Let’s get into the recipe




Parathas made: 12 nos.


  • Wheat flour – 4cups
  • Corn flour – ½ cup
  • Ginger – 1 inch (cut into cubes)

  • Oil – 3 tsp
  • Salt as per taste.


  • Heat a kadai & pour 2 tsp of oil. Then add chopped onion, ginger, green chilies & garlic pods. Add little salt & sauté.
  • When the onion turns transparent, switch off the flame & allow it to cool & grind it in mixer into asmooth paste.
  • In a bowl, add wheat flour, corn flour, little salt, turmeric powder, garam masala powder & corianderleaves & mix well.
  • Then add paste to the dough & knead well. (I didn’t require water to knead the dough)
  • Pour 1 tsp oil in the dough & knead thoroughly till all the ingredients are well mixed & smooth dough is
  • ready.
  • Cover the bowl with a lid & keep it aside for 10 mins. Then make medium sized balls.
