Bhujia Paratha Recipe is a flavorful dish that needs no special side dish.Simple and easy to prepare ,it is sure to tickle your taste buds.

During my school days, we had a lot of North Indian students in our class.The break time / interval was something we would always wait for eagerly.We used to share our snacks and got to taste a whole lot of new stuffs.

We would receive a ‘huge’ portion if we were friends with a certain someone who always brought different snacks everyday. And there would be no sharing if someone suddenly decided not to share a pencil or an eraser!


Such wonderful, carefree days !!Looking back all those silly fights and small morsels of food made a whole world of difference!Now they seem so petty and yet it was the best days of our life!

So,most often, the North Indian friends would bring Bhujia and sweets in their snack box. For us South Indians, it looked a lot like our Oma Podi but on tasting it, we realized the difference!I can still recollect the spicy, tangy flavor of those crispy snacks!

Today’s post brings back a lot of those childhood memories. The reason is pretty obvious,isn’t it! Yes,I have used Bhujia as a stuffing in a paratha!

Lil Angel was pretty thrilled that I was making this paratha and was so eager to taste it. But it did not please her as much as she had expected it to be. She said the taste was OK but was not floored by the flavor!

I liked it a lot though and Lil dude totally refused to try out anything new in the stuffing even if was Bhujia. He preferred roti and bhujia separately and relished the two individually!

Since it is very flavorful on its own, I served with with a curd /yugurt and a bit of Mango pickle.

I used store bought Bhujia but you can also use the homemade one. I did not have time to make it from scratch so got a small pack of Haldirams Alu Bhujia and used it in this recipe.

Here are a few flatbreads that start with B

Step by step method to prepare Bhujia Paratha Recipe

Take the whole wheat flour in a bowl and add salt and mix well.

Add water little by little and knead to a smooth ,non sticky dough.Add oil and knead one more ,cover and keep aside.

Take the bhujia, finely chopped onions, curry leaves, chili powder, a little salt and mix well. This is the filling.

Pinch out a golf sized ball of dough and flatten it a little with a rolling pin.Place a tablespoon of the filling in the center and bring the edges together, sealing the contents well. Now, gently roll out into Parathas, dusting a little whole wheat flour if necessary.

Cook on medium flame over a griddle, till brown spots appear on each side. Do not over heat the griddle as the paratha will get burnt.

Delicious Bhujia paratha is ready to be served!

Note:

  • Check the taste of the bhujia before adding chili powder and salt. If the taste is ok, do not add more chili powder / salt.
  • Similarly, if the bhujia is plain tasting, add a little amchur powder[Dried mango powder ] to the filling mixture.
  • The filling may / may not be fully used up. If there left over, enjoy it as a snack!

  1. School days were the best and sharing snacks was the cherry on top!! Love this paratha….I can imagine my daughter’s eyes lighting up hearing about its stuffing. Nice pick

  2. This one looks awesome PJ. I have never come across this paratha, but I am sure it tastes so good. I guess the bhujia will lose its crispness. But it will surely add to the flavour.

  3. Ah you surely brought back many wonderful memories by talking about school and school snacks PJ..this one is totally new, I don’t’ remember my friends bringing in. i will surely want to make this soon..:)

  4. Love to read about childhood days, guess we all were similar in some or the other ways. Bhujiya paratha have turned out delicious. But I eat bhujiya just like that or simply roll them, I am sure before stuffing half I will finish by eating only.

  5. bhujiya paratha looking so mouthwatering. Bhujiya itself taste great with tea. I am sure this paratha would an awesome pairing with rea.
