Sev Paratha!! It's so yummy, you have got to try it!

Last year when the pandemic waned a little, I found myself alone for lunch one day with just a packet of thick sev in the snacks box. And I just got a lunch idea. I had seen sev paratha on TV but never really made any or eaten too. Why not? was the thought behind cooking that lonesome lunch.

The paratha was everything I had hoped for - loaded with the stuffing and spices tingling in my mouth.

What is Sev?

If you have never had sev, you should head over to the nearest supermarket or Indian store and pick up a packet. It tastes amazing sprinkled on top of literally anything. 

Sev is a deep fried Indian snack made from gram flour (besan) or chickpea flour. It looks like fine yellow vermicelli. Sev has many sizes, from the finest nylon sev to the thick sev. 

For the sev paratha, I recommend the slightly thicker sev so they hold their shape and don't dissolve away. You can use aloo bhujia too or any flavored sev like garlic or palak.

More details...

The stuffing for sev paratha is very very easy to make. It is made of just 5 ingredients - sev , obviously, finely chopped onions (skip for a Jain version), coriander leaves, chaat masala and red chilli powder. I did not add any salt as the sev already is salty and the chaat masala has salt too. Just mix and you are ready to stuff. Make the stuffing just before you are ready to roll out the parathas to prevent it from getting soggy.

The dough is your regular roti/chapati dough made from atta (wholewheat flour), water and salt.

3. Divide the dough into 3 equal portions and roll them out into small disks. Use dry flour for dusting as required to prevent the dough from sticking to the surface.
4. Spoon the stuffing equally onto each of the dough disks and seal the edges of the dough.
5. Dust the counter with dry flour and roll out the parathas to around 6 inches in diameter or as thin as you can.
