Spring onion paratha recipe

Spring onion paratha recipe - Paratha is one of the favorite breakfast dishes which we like to have often. Spring onions are usually used in Indo-chinese cooking as a garnish. But we can also prepare delicious parathas out of the spring onions. Whenever I have a bunch of these green onions, I make parathas and zunka. Though I make some side dishes to serve with parathas, I personally prefer  to have it with pickle, chutney and yogurt. Usually, paratha is made by using  stuffing method or mix and roll method. The mix and roll method is very easy, simple and quick. Even you can prepare the dough well in advance and keep in the refrigerator to make and serve hot parathas as and when required.

Here I have used six spring onions along with bulbs for a cup of wheat flour. The taste and flavour of the paratha differs on the quantity of spring onions that you use. You can use some more spring onions in this recipe. The quantity of other ingredients and yogurt  depends upon the quantity of flour and spring onions. However you can adjust the ingredients according to your taste. You can also add fistful of chopped coriander leaves and few chopped mint leaves to the dough for extra flavor. I have not used them in this recipe. Also check out some other paratha recipes in this space.
