onion paratha

Its everyday saga for me to think what to cook for tomorrow’s breakfast and lunch box ? So ,this recipe has become a saviour for me ,many times. As I prepare onion paratha for breakfast as well as pack the same for Lunch box too.

Ease way to laze around once in a while with such kind of 2 in 1 breakfast – lunch box options.Other breakfast-lunch box option ,I often follow are: Aloo Paratha , Chinese Stuffed Paratha, Mooli ParathaAvarekalu Bath ,Tomato Bath & Moong Dal Rice.

I personally love this Onion paratha because I add Kalonji (onion seeds) and Ajwain (carom Seeds). Unlike ,other Paratha’s don’t roll it thin ,roll it bit thick ,so that onions doesn’t sneak peek here and there.

Also roll paratha and cook it simultaneously , as onions may start releasing juices when it comes in contact with salt, if delayed.Fry on hot tava / griddle by drizzling ghee/ oil ,flip and cook on both sides,till crisp.

Serve Onion Paratha with Boondi Raita / Curds and Pickle.
