Pyaz ka Paratha (Onion Stuffed Indian Bread)

Pyaz_Paratha_Onion_Stuffed_Indian_Bread_1 Onion paratha is delicious with onion flavor. Like onion uthappam, stuffed parathas can be made with onion and spices. I mix cumin powder, garam masala powder and dry mango powder in the finely chopped onion for stuffing. I also use boiled potato to bind onion.

My children love this onion flavored parathas. Onion is known as Pyaz in Hindi and as Vengayam in Tamil.

  • Stuffing of paratha: Now divide the dough into small parts; take one and shape like a cup; fill the stuffing, close the edges; roll and pat it gently in your palm.

  • Repeat the process for remaining dough also. Serve hot with raitha or chutney.


  • Here is a partly peeled paratha to show the stuffing inside.



  • For 5 to 6 onions, I use one potato for binding.
  • Finely chopped spring onion also can be used for stuffing.
