Keema Paratha, a deep fried version
This version of keema paratha is almost very similar to Muglai paratha, the only difference being it without egg and unlike muglai , it can be frozen as well ( before frying) , 🙂 . So you can entertain yourself , your family or even the guests anytime with this lovely , very crispy and “yummy in my tummy” parathas . 🙂
Shredded Chicken or prepared beef keema
Chopped green chilies
Chopped cilantro and mint
Chopped capsicum ( you can add more veggies like carrot , green peas , sweet corn etc)
Cottage cheese ( Optional)
Heat oil and add chicken pieces or prepared keema and veggies . Fry for a while,add the chopped onion, green chilies and chopped mint and cilantro . Add the cheese . Turn off the stove . The onion will be half done with the heat the chicken already got . The half done onion will give an extremely nice flavor .. 🙂
For shredded chicken , just boil chicken breast pieces with little minced ginger, salt, few whole black pepper and very little minced garlic . When it’s done , you can easily tear off the chicken pieces .
For prepared beef keema , boil the keema with ginger, garlic paste and soy sauce till it’s completely dried out .
Now make your filling with above mentioned recipe . 🙂 You can use your left over chicken or beef to make this filling . 🙂

Cream cheese ( to rub over the paratha, this is optional)
1. For the dough , mix maida, baking powder, salt, sugar and oil . That’s what we call “moyan” . Now add enough room temperature water to make a medium hard dough . Just enough to make the dough come out from the bowl. Knead well .Cover it with a warm cheese cloth and keep aside for atleast 30 minutes . The dough will be softer and stretchy.You can make two round ball from it .
2. Take one ball and roll out as thin as possible . But don’t use any flour , while rolling it out . Rub some oil over the rolling pin and the rolling board and roll out the ball into a thin roti . Now apply some ghee or cream cheese over the roti and put some filling over it .
3.Fold the porota half lengthwise from both sides..
3. Deep fry the paratha on medium low heat .
