The Chicken paratha is not a regular dish in Indian subcontinent household ,it is mostly made at hotels and restaurant and  also it is one of the best party dish .Now the taste of Chicken Paratha  has reached many countries from Indian subcontinent.
So let’s talk about recipe. :-


• 1 Cup Boneless Chicken

• 1 Cup Gram Flour

• 2 Cup Wheat Flour

• 1 Egg

• ¾ Cooked Chapattis

• 1 Tbsp Coriander Leaves

• 2 Green Chilies

• 1 Small Capsicum

• 2 Onions

• 1 Tomato

• 1 Tsp Garam Masala

• 1 Tsp Roasted Cumin Powder

• ½ Tsp Red Chili Paste

• Coriander Leaves

• 2 Tbsp Oil

• Salt to Taste

How to make:--

Boil chicken in a saucepan till almost cooked. (Save the broth for future use-makes lovely soup!). Cool and chop the chicken in a blender.

Heat the oil. Add the chopped onions & curry leaves. Fry till golden brown. Add all the dry powders and fry for 30 secs. Add the minced chicken and salt and fry till the raw smell of the coriander powder goes off. (takes approximately 4-5 minutes in medium heat). Remove from heat and mix in coriander leaves.

Make lemon-sized balls from the dough. Roll the ball from the edges leaving a small hunch in the center.

Take enough chicken stuffing and roll the dough to make a ball once again. Flatten it carefully to the size desired. Heat the tava and place the paratha for a minute or so. Add a few drops of melted butter or ghee to the top uncooked side and then flip it over. Turn once again after 30 secs or so and place the paratha in a long aluminum foil.

Do the same way with the rest of the parathas. Place all the parathas one above the other in the aluminum foil and make sure U wrap it every time. The idea of using the foil is to retain the heat and moisture of the parathas and stays fresh for 24 hrs, Can be reheated in a microwave oven.
