Pocket Paratha

Ingredients to make Pocket Paratha

  • 3 cups maida/flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ cup curd
  • ½ cup Milk
  • For the filling
  • chicken filling
  • 2 chicken sausages, chopped
  • 3 tbsp chopped onions
  • 1 Green chilli, chopped
  • 1 egg
  • salt to taste
  • paneer filling
  • 1 cup grated paneer
  • 3 tbsp chopped onions
  • 1 Green chilli, chopped
  • 1 egg (skip if you are a vegetarian)
  • salt to taste

How to make Pocket Paratha

  1. Sift the maida and salt. Mix together the curd and milk. Knead the maida using the milk and curd. Knead well till you can feel it becoming silky and smooth. Wrap with a clingfilm and keep for 2 hours.
  2. For the filling mix all ingredients together with beaten egg.
  3. Lightly dust the working surface with flour. Divide the dough into four balls. Roll out one of the balls as thin as possible.
  4. Place half the paneer filling in the middle. Fold the longer sides over the filling. Then fold in the other two sides making a pocket.
  5. Heat some oil. It is totally up to you how much oil you want to use. The parathas taste best when they are deep fried (of course)!!
  6. However I have used less oil and cooked on low heat so that they are cooked through and yet absorb less oil.
  7. These taste good without any vegetables or side dishes. I prefer just a dab of ketchup and I am good to go.

My Tip:

Choose filling according to your preference, be it vegetarian or non vegetarian.
