Nutrition: per serving



  • 300 g Whole Wheat Flour
  • 300 g Chicken Breast
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 Green Chillies finely chopped
  • 2 tsp Ginger Garlic Paste
  • 1 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1 tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1 tsp Cumin Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Chilli Powder
  • Salt
  • Coriander chopped
  • Water


  • Boil the boneless chicken breast in a pot of water until fully cooked.
  • Once cooked, remove from the water and allow it to cool slightly.
  • Shred the chicken into small pieces using two forks or your hands. Set aside.
  • Heat a tablespoon of cooking oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
  • Add the chopped onions and green chilies. Sauté until the onions turn golden brown.
  • Stir in the ginger-garlic paste and cook for another minute.
  • Add the shredded chicken, turmeric powder, ground coriander, ground cumin, red chili powder, and salt to taste. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Sprinkle freshly chopped coriander leaves over the chicken mixture. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour with a pinch of salt.
  • Gradually add water and knead the flour into a soft dough. Cover and let it rest for 15-20 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into equal-sized portions and roll each portion into a ball.
  • Flatten each dough ball into a small disc and place a spoonful of the chicken mixture in the center.
  • Fold the edges of the dough over the filling, sealing it completely, and then gently roll it out into a round paratha.
  • Heat a frying pan over medium heat and cook each paratha on both sides until golden brown, brushing each side with a oil.
  • Serve the Chicken Parathas hot with yogurt, pickles, or your favorite chutney.
