Pav Bhaji Paratha

Once in a while I get this urge to make nice parathas. Yesterday i made simple pav bhaji paratha. Idea was to make simple mixed vegetable stuffed paratha but decided to change things as I remembered pavbhaji midst of grinding vegetables! Here is how I made them -

1/2 cup Frozen Green Peas
1 medium Potato
1/2 small Tomato
1/2 Bell Pepper (I used red) - optional
1 medium or 5-6 baby carrots
Cauliflower floret of fist size
1 tbsp Pav Bhaji Masala
Salt as needed
Fistful Chopped Cilantro
Small blob of Ginger
Whole wheat Flour as needed

Preparation -
Cook potato in microwave until done. Set it aside to cool. 
Wash all the vegetables. Remove seeds from bell pepper if you are planning to use it.
Add all the vegetables in grinder, add ginger and grind until coarse paste. Make sure there are no big chunks of vegetable left.
Now peel potato, grate it in a large bowl you want to use to make dough. Add ground vegetable paste. Add salt, paavbhaji masala, chopped cilantro. Mix everything thoroughly.
And now add wheat flour 1/4th cup at a time. Mix the dough using almost no water or very little water.
Set it aside for 15-20 minutes.
Roll out parathas as usual. Roast on griddle with little oil.
Enjoy with pickles and yogurt.

Tips -
  • I used up to 2 cups of flour to make the dough.
  • I did not use extra chilies or chili powder as I like my food mild spicy. But feel free to add if you like it.


  1. Made this last night. The dough is *sticky*. I needed a lot of flour for it to come together, which meant I have enough dough for another dinner. :-) The paratha is so tashtee. Doesn't need anything else with it, although I spread mine with some butter. After all, it is pav bhaji paratha - how could I not have it with butter.

    Another winner from your list.

    1. Thank you ET for trying. I forgot to add the tip about how much flour I added. I added that now.

  2. Quite likely I needed more flour because I used an entire tomato which would have added a lot of liquid. I didn't have a use for the other half so I put it in.
