Masala Paratha

Masala Paratha, this is a common dish in North India. But for South Indians, it might look little different. We can try this paratha When we get bored of doing the same usual chapati. This is easy to make as well. Just add the seasoned onion while making chapati dough. After that, making paratha is same as we make chapati. I have made paratha in triangular shape in this recipe, you can make in your preferred shapes. This will be different and tastier than our usual chapati. Goes well with any kind of subzi or side dish we make for chapati.
