We are on Day 16 in the A-Z Flatbread challenge in the Blogging Marathon #92.I wanted to make this Papad Stuffed Paratha Recipe for the alphabet P but I already have a Bikaniri Papad paratha version here.

Then I  thought I will make another version of this Bikaniri Papad Stuffed Paratha Recipe by adding another ingredient into the stuffing so that it looks like a new dish! No, its not cheating ! You can indeed make 1000’s of varieties of parathas and Rotis by just adding or removing one or more ingredient in the filling and that will in turn have a new taste and will be most welcome on the table as well, right!

This recipe was inspired from here.Papad is a favorite at home. The kids and I can have just curd rice if there is papad on the side. Sometime I wonder if I ate papad as the main dish and rice as a side.


In fact one of our family friend used to joke that she would either get me married off to someone who runs a papad manufacturing unit or gift me a life long supply of papad and oil to fry it in!Such is my love for these deep fried crispies!

Over the years I have reduced the intake of papad but cannot stay away from it.

Instead of frying it,nowadays, I microwave it for a couple of seconds and that is more than enough to satiate the papad craving!

I had a pack of masala papad and have used it in this recipe. I  added some colored capsicum to add a bit of color to the dish.Well, actually I had bits and pieces of colored capsicum so thought will use it here.

This can be served with yogurt / curd or a raita and does not require any elaborate side. I made sure that the recipes I selected for this edition meet this criteria as I am cooking and posting the same day and cooking something elaborate is not my forte right now.

Before we go on to the recipe, take a look at the list of flat breads that start with P

Note:

  • I used Pepper flavored masala papad so added very little chili powder.
  • I microwaved the papad on high for a few seconds till done. You can also deep fry it and use
  • If tricolor capsicum is not available the regular green one can be used.
  • To make masala raita,beat curd with salt and add a masala spice mix of your choice. I used Garlic paruppu podi.Whisk and serve garnished with a few pinches of the same masala mix and chopped coriander.

  1. Such a cool idea to stuff papad and capsicum in a paratha! My daughter is just like you – has papas as the main dish and rice as a side. I will now definitely make this for her!!

  2. The papad and capsicum paratha is so colourful , I mean the stuffing looks very colourful with those capsicums . I have yet to try a papad paratha , but a papad capsicum paratha simply rocks ! It must have tasted awesome .
    Well lot of people are papad fans , even I am but trying to cut down its consumption .

  3. I also had a papad paratha bookmarked for this letter. However, ended up making something else. So true we can literally make so many versions with different ingredients. Interesting to know your papad love..I used to be so specific during childhood that I need to have one for sambar or rasam..however, it all went off after marriage..hehehe..nice pictures..
