Stuffed chicken paratha

This is an easy to make stuffed paratha and you don't need that extra spoon of ghee to make it lovely. It is appetizing in its way itself.


Ingredients
  • Chicken - 1/2 kg
  • Onion - 1
  • Ginger - a small piece
  • Garlic - 2 pods
  • Green chilli - 2 
  • Chilli powder - 2 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Lemon juice of half a lemon
  • Oil - 1tsp
  • Wheat flour - 3 cups
  • Water as needed to knead the dough

Method
  • In a pressure cooker mix together cleaned chicken pieces, chilli powder, turmeric powder, lemon juice and salt.
  • Cook it until the first whistle and turn off the gas
  • In the mean time chop the onion, ginger, garlic and chilli very finely. 
  • Heat oil in a pan and add the chopped ingredients
  • Fry until the onion gets the brown colour
  • Open the cooker and de-bone the chicken pieces. Don't throw away the stock
  • Pour this stock into the pan with onion-ginger-garlic and leave it on slow heat.
  • In a grinder, grind the chicken and add it to the pan. Let all the stock dry up.
  • Now you'll have a very smooth filling ready to go into your paratha.
  • Make a dough with wheat flour as you make for chappathi.
  • Roll out a chappathi and spread a lavish 1-2 tbsp filling on it.
  • Make a slit from the center to one side of the roti, spread 1-2 tbsp of the chicken filling on the  roti and start rolling from the slit around to make it a cone. Press the ends. (Thanks to masala tv channel for the rolling technique ;) 
  • Again roll out the stuffed cone. Put on a hot tawa and cook both sides. There is no need to add ghee as this paratha is tasty as such.
