Onion paratha recipe | Pyaz ka paratha, the recipe with full video and step by step pictures. Onion paratha is a simple paratha recipe using whole wheat flour, onions, besan, and few spice powders. I have been trying to make onions parathas, but either it oozes out water or it will turn out very hard. Somehow I wanted to crack a no-fail onion paratha recipe. During this lockdown, as we are limited to vegetables, and I wanted to the Onion paratha recipe again. Finally, after a few trials, I cracked the foolproof recipe.

For all North Indian readers who are expert in making onion parathas, I know it may be a simple one. But for South Indians, getting a perfect parathas needs practice. I have posted many paratha recipes in Jeyashri’s kitchen. I can confidently say I can make perfect Aloo paratha, Gobi and Paneer paratha as well.

A few months back, after moving to Hongkong, I posted Spring onion paratha. That paratha is kneading the onions and spices to the flour. This recipe is Stuffed Onion paratha. Do try this at home let me know how it turned out.

Why are we adding Besan | Gram flour to the Onion paratha filling

This helps in making the filling dry and hence the onions will not ooze out extra water. This will also make the filling soft and gives soft onion parathas.
