few tips for onion paratha recipe:
1. the onions have to be finely chopped. if not, then you won’t be able to roll the parathas.
2. as a variation some chopped coriander/cilantro leaves can also be added to the stuffing.
3. another variation which changes the flavor completely is adding ajwain or carom seeds. sometimes i add these to the parathas. just sprinkle a pinch or two on top of the onions whilst sprinkling the garam masala etc.
4. if making onion parathas for kids, then skip the green chilies and the spice powders.
5. for a tangy taste, sprinkle some amchur powder or chaat masala on the onions.
