Subzi Parantha

Subzi Parantha Recipe Card


Punjabi food is wholesome and full of rustic flavour. The custom of cooking in community ovens or tandoors prevails in rural pockets even today. The cuisine is characterised by a profusion of dairy products in the form of malai, paneer and dahi. The dals are a speciality of this type of cuisine, made of whole pulses like black gram, green gram and Bengal gram.  They are cooked on slow fire, often simmered for hours till they turn creamy and then flavoured with spices and rounded off with malai for that rich finish. The food is simply delicious.
The most unique thing about cooking in a tandoor is the smoky flavour that the food gets making it tastier. Moreover it is a healthy way of cooking since minimum fat is required and the food generally gets cooked in its own juices thus retaining its natural flavours. Besides it is not only easy to digest, it is also very hygienic.  In conclusion one can safely say that it is through tandoori cooking that Indian cuisine first got globally acknowledged.

Ingredients for Subzi Parantha Recipe

  • Refined flour (maida) 1 1/2 cups

  • Whole wheat flour (atta) 1 1/2 cups

  • Ghee 3 tablespoons

  • Milk a little

  • Onion chopped 1 small

  • Cauliflower + green peas + caulliflower + french beans 1 cup

  • Potatoes boiled and mashed 1 medium

  • Green chillies chopped 2

  • Red chilli powder 1/2 teaspoon

  • Garam masala powder 1/2 teaspoon

  • Fresh coriander leaves a few

  • Salt to taste


Step 1

Mix the refined flour, wheat flour, salt and butter. Add enough milk to make a soft dough. Knead the dough very well and keep aside for fifteen minutes. Divide the dough into twelve equal portions and roll out into rounds with the help of a little flour. Cook each round very lightly on a tawa and keep in a folded wet napkin. To make stuffing, heat ghee and cook onion till soft.

Step 2

Add mixed vegetables, potatoes, green chillies, red chilli powder, garam masala powder, chopped coriander and salt and cook for two minutes. Remove from heat and cool. Put two tablespoons of the stuffing in the center of each semi-cooked parantha and fold like an envelope from all corners. Place on a tawa with the open edges at the bottom.

Step 3

Cook for a few minutes, turn over on the other side and cook again until crisp. Repeat with the remaining semi cooked paranthas and stuffing. Serve hot with yogurt.
