Spring onion paratha is a soft and layered paratha unique from the regular paratha that we make at home. Spring onion paratha is so flavorful that it can be consumed without any side accompany also, but with any spicy side dish too it goes very well. I am a huge fan of this spring onion paratha since childhood and in those days this paratha comes in the stores in frozen pack and every alternate day I used pester my mom to make it and now i make it often at home as we have spring onion growing in our patio, making it much easier and frequent for me to prepare. This paratha involves no spiciness or masala but still taste delish for those who really like the flavors and taste of spring onion just like me. This paratha is made with maida which complements the spring onion color very well. So if you like to try out different variety of paratha do try this recipe. So lets get to the making!

How to make Spring onion paratha with step by step images
- In a bowl add maida, salt, sugar and oil. Mix everything well.
- Knead it into a soft dough by adding water gradually.(I used around 1/4 cup water while kneading) Keep it aside for 10 minutes.
- Now pinch a golf ball sized dough and roll it very thin with a rolling pin. Now apply ghee/ oil to the rolled dough.
- Sprinkle chopped spring onion over the flattened dough and start pleating it as shown in the picture. this pleating helps in creating layers.
- Now roll the plated dough and flatten it once again thin.
- Heat a tava and place the flattened paratha on it. Drizzle some oil around it . When brown spots appear flip it to the other side and cook till done. Transfer it to a plate and serve it hot with any curry/ gravy of your choice!
