Tofu Paratha / Tofu Chapati Recipe

Print Friendly and PDF
We all know Tofu is very rich in calcium and protein but tastes not so well like paneer. So we have to compromise in taste to have a healthy food. Instead of adding tofu in gravies or curries, I thought making paratha is a better and easy way of consuming it. I mixed the grated tofu and masala powders in the paratha dough instead of stuffing the masla. It came out soft and tasty. Lets see how to make Tofu paratha recipe with step by step pictures.
Ingredients

1 cup - 200ml
  • Atta /Wheat flour – 1 cup
  • Tofu (Soya paneer) – 50 gms (grated)
  • Green chilly – 1 no (Finely chopped)
  • Red chilly powder – 1/2 tsp (optional)
  • Ginger – 1 inch (grated)
  • Onion – 1 no (finely chopped or grated)
  • Garam masala powder– 1/2 tsp
  • Coriander leaves /Curry leaves – few (finely chopped)
  • Salt & water – as needed.
  • oil – 1 tbsp
Method:
  • Take  the wheat flour  in a wide mouthed bowl.Add  all the ingredients given above with required water and salt and make it to a soft dough.(add less water initially.add more if required.)
  • Make balls of even size and roll it to make parathas..
  • Heat a dosa tawa and cook on both sides..
Serve hot with pickle and raitha!!
