Spring Onion Chapati | Scallion Flat Bread

Spring Onion Chapati | Scallion Chappati  is a spicy chapati with the fresh  flavours of spring onion. I thought of making a different dish with the left out spring onion, after preparing veg fried rice. The same time I was asked to give chapathi recipes to Malligai Magal. The outcome is spring onion chapathi | spring onion paratha. Believe me,  it turned out so yummy and it has been added to our regular menu. On eating this, my husband told me it tastes like “Bing”, a famous Chinese crepe! 

Here is the recipe.


For preparing dough:
  • Whole wheat flour – 1 cup
  • Water and salt as needed
  • Oil – 1 tbsp
  • Maida/ All purpose flour– 3 tbsp for dusting.

For stuffing:
  • Spring onion (green part) – ¼ cup
  • Paneer (grated) – ¼ cup
  • Red chilli powder – 1 tsp
  • Salt to taste

  1. Prepare the dough as I have given in “How to make soft Chapatis”
  2. Clean spring onion(green part alone) and wash well. Chop finely.
  3. Add grated paneer, red chilli powder and salt with the spring onion. Mix well and keep it aside.
  4. After 10 minutes, make small balls out of the dough.
  5. Shape the dough ball like a bowl and stuff the spring onion stuffing inside and close the stuffing with the dough.
  6. Gently roll  the stuffed dough into thin, round discs using roller pin by dusting  with maida/ all purpose flour.
  7. Place the tawa/skillet on a stove. Let it get heated.
  8. Place the rolled chapati on the heated tawa, wait for bubbles to come on the surface. Flip the chapati immediately and leave it for a minute.
  9. Cook on both sides on high flame, flipping it now and then, till brown spots appear on the parantha & it gets cooked completely.

Your spicy, hot spring onion chapatti | paratha is ready to eat! It can be had with any sauce or raita or with plain curds.

  • For kids, you can apply some butter/ghee on  paratha. For elders, we can use gingelly oil and those on diet can avoid this step.
  • If you find it difficult to make a stuffed paratha, you can straight away mix all the ingredients and prepare like chapatti.
