Sugar stuffed paratha

Paratha is a pan-fried Indian flatbread that is a very popular North-Indian breakfast dish. Cheeni ka paratha is a sugar stuffed paratha that was traditionally given to children who were fussy eaters. It also makes a delicious sweet treat for kids and adults alike. Serve it with malai (fresh milk cream) and a hot cup of tea for a filling evening snack.

The sweet paratha needs just three simple ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen.

1 serving

Ingredients

  • 1 atta ka peda (medium-sized ball of whole wheat flour dough)
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons cheeni (ground sugar), or to taste
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons desi ghee (clarified butter)

Instructions

  1. Roll the dough into a ball; then dust it with dry flour and roll it out into a roti.
  2. Spread desi ghee all over the roti and then sprinkle the ground sugar. Spread the sugar all over.
  3. Fold the paratha as shown in the video to make a square piece of dough.
  4. Roll out the square dough to make a medium thick paratha.
  5. Heat a tawa on medium heat; then lower heat to medium-low, spread a little desi ghee over it, and place the paratha on it. Cook for 15-20 seconds.
  6. Flip over the paratha and cook the other side for 15-20 seconds.
  7. Flip the paratha once again, spread a little desi ghee on it, flip it again, and spread desi ghee on this side, too.
  8. Cook the paratha by flipping frequently and cook it until it is crisp and golden on both sides.
  9. Remove and serve it right away with malai (fresh milk cream) and hot tea. Do not wait to serve, as the melted sugar will start to solidify as it cools, making the paratha stiff.

Yes, it's quite different from the cinnamon and sugar toast, Peggy but quite delicious too. Thanks for stopping by.

Thank you, Pamela. Have a wonderful week.

Thank you, Bill. You have a great week as well.

I would love to try your recipe. I think the sweet bread and the cream would go very well together.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on June 29, 2020:

Not quite the same, but this reminds me of eating toast with cinnamon and sugar on it after it being spread with butter. Of course, yours is fried dough and only has the butter and sugar.

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on June 29, 2020:

This bread looks delicious. I think I would really like this recipe. Thanks, Rajan.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on June 29, 2020:
