Tofu paratha : Scrambled tofu stuffed paratha


For dough:
Durum atta flour or whole wheat flour - 4 cups
Salt - 1 tbs
Sugar - 1 tbs (optional)
Oil - 1 tbs
Warm water - 1 cup or as needed

For Stuffing:

Firm tofu - 1 block (11/2 cups scrambled tofu)
Chat masala - 1/2 tbs
Chilly powder - 1/4 tbs or to taste
Salt - 1/2 tbs
Turmeric - 1/2 tbs
Coriander and Cumin powder - 1/2 tbs each
Fresh Ccoriander leaves - handful, finely chopped
Onion - 1/2 cup finely chopped

  • Add all the dough ingredients in a big bowl and knead very well. Make a chapathi dough.
  • Cover it with lightly wet  kitchen towel and let it rest for half an hour.
  • Meanwhile, prepare stuffing.
  • Take out as much as water as you possible can from the firm tofu. The water makes it difficult to roll the paratha.
  • Scramble the tofu, add all other stuffing ingredients.
  • Mix it well with hand or spatula.
  • Sprinkle some flour in to the flat surface.
  • Make a small ball from the dough and roll into small chapathi with a rolling pin .
  • Fill the spoon full of stuffing's in the center of the chapathi and cover it with from all the ends.
  • Carefully roll the stuffed ball to desired thickness to make paratha.
  • Heat the griddle and cook the paratha both sides until browned. Lightly brush the oil or ghee on top of the paratha.
  • Enjoy the delicious healthy tofu paratha with mint chutney or your favorite curry.
