For Dough

  1. Combine the wheat flour, salt and 1 tbsp olive oil in a bowl. Knead with water into a smooth dough.

  2. Brush the dough with a spoon of oil and knead for 2-3 minutes. Cover and let it rest for 30 minutes.

For Stuffing

  1. Grate the boiled eggs and set aside..

  2. Sear the bacon in a pan on medium heat. Dice and set them aside.

  3. In the same pan, heat the oil on medium heat. Add spinach and saute for a minute.

  4. Add paprika, oregano, salt and black pepper and mix well to combine. Transfer to a bowl and mix with bacon and eggs.

  5. Divide the dough into equal-sized balls and set aside. Cover them with a cloth.

  6. Roll a ball of dough into a circle of 10-12”.

  7. Spread the prepared mixture onto half of the circle, leaving some space at the edges.

  8. Add a layer of cheese or a cheese slice onto the mixture and fold the remaining half of the dough over the filling. Press the edges to seal them together.

  9. Repeat the same process with the rest of the dough balls.

  12. Apply oil to both sides of the paratha and cook until golden brown from all sides.

Tips & Tricks

  1. In this recipe, I have used cheese to retain the moisture of the paratha, but you can skip it if you desire.

  2. The recipe yields approximately 8 parathas, but this may vary depending on the size of each paratha.

  3. You can adjust the amount of spices and seasonings according to your taste.
