Onion Paratha Recipe
Whenever I feel down, I try to avoid staying alone, either I go for long walk around my community or I visit my Aunt's place after dropping kids at school. One such day I was at her place and like my mom she reads my face well. Sangeeta , Are you ok? Did you had your Breakfast? I replied yes Aunty, but she understood that I was lying and she said its ok you, I will make onion parante, you taste it. She quickly prepared onion paratha and served with butter and curd.

Food is therapeutic, the preparation or cooking or the fresh flavors sometimes heals our stress, I wondered how she made this yummy paratha that quick, and the flavor and the way she made for me & served with love & care everything uplifted my moon, felt really better. Later, I realized that My Mom is with me to take care of me in other ways. 
Onion Paratha Recipe
I returned home after having a satisfying delicious breakfast and a good chat with Aunty. Both good food and good talk changed my mood in a better way. Then on the same day I made this onion paratha for my kids as after school tiffin, they loved it a lot. From that time I wanted to share this recipe here on my blog and finally made it last week during kids winter holidays. My kids motivated me to take a recipe video and they helped me to shoot video of the recipe. I uploaded the original video where my little explains the recipe while I am preparing and it was captured by elder one. Both my boys were interested in shooting video and I have uploaded that video on their Channel. If you want you can watch it Here.

I followed her recipe except I added some chaat masala for additional flavor and also reduced green chilli and added chilli powder, as I prepared for my kids. 
Aunty, recommended to make onion paratha by preparing 2 pedas for 1 paratha, this way it is easy to roll and also tastes best than the single stuffed ones. I did one extra step, instead of rolling it a plain 2 rotis I rolled it like how we do for Plain Paratha, In the below video I showed one method of rolling and in the step wise there is another method of rolling, you can choose whichever is convenient for you. Or simple roll 2 rotis(like how do for chapathi and keep the filling). Either way this onion paratha will tastes great. So, Please try this recipe and let me know how it turned out to you.We also did video recording of this recipe but need some editing work will try to share the recipe video soon. Now off to the recipe..
