How to make Spicy Rice Stuffed Paratha Recipe
To begin making the Spicy Rice Stuffed Paratha, we will first make the dough. Add in the flour and a pinch of salt into a large bowl. Add a little water at a time and knead to make a firm yet smooth dough.
Knead well for about 3 to 4 minutes, this will make the parathas soft.
Drizzle a teaspoon of oil over the dough and knead for another couple of minutes. Cover and keep aside till we make the rice filling for the paratha.
Next, we will combine the leftover rice, chopped onions, green chillies, coriander leaves, red chilli powder, chaat masala, cumin powder, lemon juice and salt. Stir to combine the ingredients well.
Now to begin making the Spicy Rice Stuffed paratha, keep some flour aside for dusting. Divide the dough into large lemon side balls.
Dust the dough portions in flour, flatten it and roll it into a 3 inch diameter circle. Place the rice filling on half side of the circle and close the paratha by folding it with the other half. Yes its as simple as that. We will have a semi circle oval shape.
Press the sides of the paratha down to seal the edges and gently using the rolling pin to flatten it. Take care, the filling can ooze out if the dough is rolled out too thin.
Now to cook the Spicy Rice Stuffed Paratha, first preheat the skillet on medium heat. Place the rolled paratha on top and allow it to cook on one side. After about 10 to 15 seconds, flip the paratha.
At this stage, smear some oil or ghee to cook the paratha. Cook the paratha by flipping over a couple of times until you see golden brown spots on both sides.
