Rajma Cheese Paratha - Rajma cheese stuffed Chapathi - Simple healthy stuffed paratha recipe - Kids friendly recipe - No Onion no Garlic recipe

I love stuffed pratha / Chapatti / Chappati / Chapathi. It is so easy to do and also perfect for one pot meal or lunch box. It is also perfect for options to sneak in vegetables / dhals / legumes. My kids love stuffed parathas. So when Srividhya gave me Rajma and cheese for this month secret ingredients I was very happy I was having this in my to do list for long time. So without any hesitation I decided to do Rajma cheese paratha. This post goes to  Shhhhh Cooking Secretly Challenge

For stuffing
Rajma - 1/2 cup
Coriander Leaves - 1/2 cup
Cumin powder - 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Green chillies - 4-5 (adjust to your spice level)
Lemon juice - 1 teaspoon
Cheese - 1/2 to 1 teaspoon per chapati

For Paratha / Chapati

Wheat flour - 1.5 cups
Salt to taste
Water to knead the dough
Oil for cooking paratha


Take the wheat flour and salt in a broader bowl. Make a dough with required water. Keep it covered till you need it
Wash Rajma and soak it overnight. Pressure cook it with salt and enough water till 4-5 whistles. Drain the extra water. 
Grind it with coriander leaves, cumin powder, green chillies and lemon juice.If you still see dhal mash it with spoon. 
Make ball slightly bigger than golf ball. Take the slightly bigger ball of chapti dough.
Roll into thick small disc. Keep the stuffing and 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon of cheese. 
Bring the edges together and roll it into thick paratha using flour for dusting
Heat the flat pan and when it is hot place rolled paratha. Drizzle oil around it. Let it cook till brown spots appears. Turn it over and cook on other side.
