Chicken Stuffed Paratha

We had roast chicken on Sunday, and whenever we have roast meat, we make stuffed paratha with the leftover meat. It is turkey at Christmas or Lamb after Eid.

This is what we had for supper on Tuesday night, with kadhi and kitchree, it was so yummy.

Ingredients

Paratha

3 cups chapati flour

1/2 tspn salt

1 tblspoon oil

enough water to make bread like dough

Filling

2 cups left-over chicken (chopped fine)

¼ cup mint (chopped fine)

1/2 cup chopped spring onions

2 cloves garlic (minced)

½ inch ginger (minced)

2 finely chopped green chillies

¼ cup chopped mint leaves

½ cup chopped coriander leaves

salt to taste

1 teaspoon garam masala

1 table spoon Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce.

1 tspn English mustard

Method

Sieve the flour and salt together. Add the oil, rub it in so that it appears like crumbs

Slowly add the water to make a firm dough. Knead well, leave aside for 30 mins

Heat the chopped chicken in a pan with garlic, ginger, chillies and salt

Add Worcestershire sauce, mustard mix, and remove from heat when cooked, let it cool

Add garam masala, onions mint and coriander.

Divide the dough in 4 parts, further divide each portion into two and roll out to get a 7 inch diameter roti.

Place a heaped tablespoon of the chicken mix on the roti and spread evenly.

Place the other roti on top, seal the edges, and roll until it is about 7 inch diameter.

Place a little olive oil on a hot tava (frying pan)

Place the paratha carefully and fry both sides for couple of minutes each side.

Repeat until all the paratha are made.

Hi Saju, Thanks for the recipe, pls confirm that 1 tblspn of water is enough to mix into a dough for the parathas as it seems very little.....thx

Saju said...

Anon! sorry my bad.
I meant to write 1 tablespoon of oil.
and enough water to make a fairly firm dough.
I have corrected it in the text. sorry about that

Hey Saju, how are you doing? Sorry, haven't been blog-hopping much lately! Lovely parantha! Your way of making stuffed parantha is so typically Punju, with two pooris. Like the pictures, they look wonderful!

Just looking at your foods makes my mouth water and my heart sense the mountains of balochistan. Oh balochistan, how i miss thou, the smell of rose petals, the air so light, the paratas so melty.

Saju - thanks for this post! I have just found your blog and am adding it to my blog roll now... Though as the first commenter said - before I had done any of that, or even written this, I first bookmarked the recipe!
And I especially like the sound of the English mustard topping =)
