Bread Paratha Recipe @

I tried to experiment and coming up with a recipe to use up my nearly expired  bread slices. Since we prefer to have a savory over sweet dish to start our day, this Bread Paratha is created.

The bread slices were slightly toasted before processing them into bread crumbs. The bread crumbs along with flour, onion, mashed potato, green chili, chopped cilantro, minced ginger, milk and salt are then combined to form a pliable dough. Make sure you add the milk/water  little by little until you get a right  consistency. Adding to much milk will result a sticky and hard to roll paratha.

For the recipe below, you will get 4 small paratha but it can easily doubled to suit your requirement. They are best served hot immediately after you've fried them.

Yield    :     4 paratha

6 bread slices turned into bread crumbs
2 tablespoon flour
1 big onion sliced
1 small potato boiled and mashed
2 green chili chopped
2 tablespoon chopped cilantro
small piece ginger grated
2-3 tablespoon milk/water
salt to taste
oil for shallow frying


Place the bread slices on flat pan, cook until both side turn light brown. You can also bake them in single layer for 10 minutes @  150 C, halfway through flip the bread. Let cool slightly.

Remove the bread, tear into small pieces onto your food processor. Whirl  into coarse meal.

Place bread crumbs, flour and mashed potato in a mixing bowl,

Mix in onion, green chili, chopped cilantro and ginger.

Gradually add milk, a tablespoon at a time to form into a dough,

Divide into 4 balls. flatten each ball into small disc.

Place the paratha on a heated  flat pan, drizzle with oil, fry until  brown spots appear, turn it over to cook  the other side. Remove from the pan.

Complete the rest of the dough..

Serve hot.

What a great way to use that almost too old bread. I would never have thought of potato, but I love the combination of the cilantro, ginger and green chili!
