Onion & Mint Parathas

Onion and Mint Parathas are parathas made with a stuffing of finely chopped onions , mint and spices . This ghee roasted parathas have a awesome flavor from mint and that zing from green chilly.

This onion and mint paratha is one of my favourite among the so many other favourites. Whenever I am not in a mood to eat what has been cooked, this Onion and Mint Paratha comes to my rescue. The paratha is loaded with onion and spices . I like to make it quite spicy , I add finely chopped green chillies , the tiny and spicy variety . These chillies have a very sharp taste and one can feel that heat but I enjoy it .

Mint is a herb that I love. Here we get a special variety of mint which is called Udaipur ka Pudina . This variety has a very unique flavour and aroma . I love this mint in my Paani Poori , Chutneys , veggies , Rotis .. oh just about everything .

Making this paratha is an art as these chopped onions ooze out water as soon as you add salt , as a result it gets difficult to roll the paratha with a good amount of stuffing .
There are a couple of tips to help you to roll it . Firstly the water should be squeezed out from the onions . After discarding this water the onions are no longer as pungent .
The second tip is to sprinkle some dry flour over the rolled disc before and after placing the stuffing . You can follow this tip for most Parathas as this helps in absorbing the moisture .

Once the paratha is rolled , lift it gently and roast without flipping it over and over . You need to flip the paratha just twice .Adjusting the flame from full to medium and slow is also important to get a good crunchy paratha .

I served the Onion and Mint Paratha with Boondi Anar Raita and Sindhi style Moong for the theme Flatbreads and More.

  1. Unknowingly, I think I have started following you. Today again, our posts are matching with the same difference, yours is a stuffed one and mine not but with almost same ingredients. Undoubtedly, Yours is looking so so tempting…..my boss 😀

  2. Wow Vaishali! Those parathas look fabulous to say the least. The combination of onion and mint is so flavorful and tasty! And I love those cute matkis by the side….

  3. Can i get a plate of this onion mint paratha for my dinner rite now. What an aromatic paratha, especially that filling makes me drool. Serve me this paratha, i can sit and have happily shamelessly.

  4. Superb looking paratha. I am sure my older one will love this and demand this paratha regularly. AS it is she has given up any paratha until the end of this month 🙂

  5. I love onion paratha when stuffed. It taste just out of the world. So far made only two times. so many onions should be cut for us. So I simple add in the dough. Drooling on this platter the way you opened it and stuffing shown. loving it

  6. I would have never thought of stuffing parathas with onion and mint though I’ve used them both by adding to the dough. Parathas look very tempting and like your tip about sprinkling the disc with flour before adding the stuffing.

  7. I always used to have onion rotis when its something else for the family too..and love it. Though I have never mixed it with mint. Must surely try. Also the mint you have mentioned sounds good and those leaves are so big and nice. This is yet another lovely stuffed paratha Vaishali!

  8. First onion and mint is a wow and a new combination. Never tried this. Second thanks for the tips, I love onion paratha, but since it becomes quite messy, I started adding directly in dough. Will try your tips for the next time
