Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Indian
Servings: 5 parathas


  • 1 cup Wheat flour atta
  • Water as needed
  • Salt as needed
  • ½ cup Capsicum
  • ½ cup Grated cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Chilli flakes
  • ½ teaspoon Dried Italian herb mixed or oregano or saved from pizza delivery
  • Oil for pan fry


  • Firstly mix flour, salt with water (less than ½ cup) and prepare dough. Keep aside. Defrost cheese so that it is soft.
  • Chop capsicum finely. Add cheese it to the capsicum along with chilli flakes and mix well.
  • Now, knead the dough and divide into 5 equal balls.
  • Roll out to palm size disc and keep the capsicum mixture in middle.
  • Close it covering the stuffing from all the sides by gathering the edge and pinching towards middle and seal.
  • Spread out carefully both sides with generous dusting into thick parathas.
  • Cook over hot tawa with oil drizzled.
  • Cook in medium flame to ensure even cooking. You can press gently with spatula for even browning.
  • Repeat to finish all.



  • The water quantity is only a guidance and it may vary plus / minus 1 or 2 tbsp.
  • Give standing time of atleast 15 mins for the dough to become smooth. Knead again after resting for smooth dough.
  • I used both red and green capsicum, to make more appealing for kids.
  • You can add chilli powder or pepper powder instead chilli flakes.
  • Do not reduce cheese as it gives a great taste along with capsicum
  • I used grated mixed cheese I bought for making pizza.You can replace cheese with paneer too.
  • The cheese melts when its being cooked, so when it cools, it will get solidified again.
