BM #92 Day 24 -

For the letter X, I have taken an exception and redefined the spelling of 'Extra' to accommodate the letter 'X'. Whatever the name / spelling might be, this cheesy paratha which was pizza like in taste was one of the popular parathas at home in this series.

Two more letters to go to finish this series. Keep guessing as to what the flatbreads might be with the letters Y and Z.

Ingredients - 

Wheat Flour 1 1/2 cups
Salt 1/4 tsp 
Cooking Oil 1 tsp + more to shallow fry
Filling - 
Onion finely chopped 1/2 cup
Colored Peppers finely chopped 1/2 cup
Shredded Cheese as needed
Salt and Red Chili Powder

Method Of Preparation -

Knead the dough in a mixing bowl by adding wheat flour, salt, oil and water. Cover and set aside for 20-30 minutes.

Pinch 6 equal portions of the dough. roll them out into 5 inch discs. Cover and set aside until ready to shallow fry.

For the filling - In a bowl, add the chopped vegetables, sprinkle salt and red chili powder. Mix well and set aside.

To assemble the paratha - On a rolled disc, place the vegetable filling in the center. Top it with shredded cheese. Wet the edges and cover it with another rolled disc on top. Make sure there are no air pockets trapped before sealing the discs. Crimp the edges using a fork.

Gently transfer this onto a hot griddle and cook on low flame so that all the filling and both the discs are evenly cooked.

grease the Parathas as needed on both sides and cook evenly on both sides. Remove onto a serving plate and continue with the rest of the rolled discs.

Serve as is or with Yogurt or Marinara sauce.
