ABOUT Onion Parathas/Pyaaz ka paratha... RECIPE

A yummy variation with spiced onion stuffing makes these Indian flat bread so very distinct. These parathas occupy a permanent place on the dining tables for breakfast or brunch in many a homes. The crunch of the onions and the spices plus the aroma of ghee makes it a lipsmacking idea of breakfast, the true Punjabi style. The only thing to be kept in mind is that the onions should be very finely chopped. I have used the method of sauteeing the onion stuffing a bit but you can use a raw stuffing if desired. Just mix all and proceed as usual in making them.
