Recipe of the week 🙂
I am here again with a very healthy paratha recipe called “oats masala paratha”.
I am posting today a stuffed Indian Bread recipe that is very tasty & nutritious indeed. If you’re tired of eating plain rotis & chapattis, then this oats masala paratha makes an ideal choice for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
I prepared the recipe on Sunday for lunch accompanied with lemon chicken and believe me the combo was just delicious. Oats are very healthy and fiber rich and just adding some masala to it and stuffing inside paratha making a very delicious.
The stuffing with oats is very simple and hardly takes less time to make scrumptious parathas which can be served with raitha or with any spicy gravy.

2 Cups whole-wheat flour
1 Cup oats
2 Chopped green chilies
1 Teaspoon chopped ginger
1/2 Teaspoon coriander powder
1/4 Teaspoon amchur powder
1/4 Teaspoon red chili powder
Wheat flour for dusting
1 Tablespoon oil for dough
Oil for frying parathas
Wheat flour for dusting
Salt to taste
- Take wheat flour in a vessel. Add salt and add water little by little and make it to a soft dough. Add a teaspoon of oil and knead well and cover the vessel with a lid and keep it aside for 15 minutes.
- Meanwhile, let’s make our filling. Take oats in a bowl and add red chili powder, coriander powder, amchur powder, salt, chopped green chilies, ginger and cilantro. Add water little by little and make it like a dough. Make equal sized balls out of the filling and keep it ready for stuffing.
- Now, make equal sized balls out of the paratha dough. Take one ball and roll it to a small circle using a rolling pin. You can dust wheat flour to prevent the dough from sticking to the rolling pin or board.
- Place the oats masala ball in the middle of the rolled paratha. Cover the dough so that the stuffing is completely sealed inside the dough.
- Again roll the stuffed paratha slightly thicker than the normal roti so that the stuffing doesn’t gets squeezed out of the dough. Repeat the same process for the rest of dough and filling.
- Heat a tawa and make sure flame is hot. Place a paratha on the tawa. Gently press the paratha using a spatula till we get bubbles.
- Flip the paratha and apply oil to the cooked side and allow the other side to cook. Once both the sides are cooked, remove from flame. Repeat it for the rest of parathas
- Oats Masala Paratha is now ready to serve with raitha or any delicious gravy of your choice.
