Hara Bhara paratha ( Whole wheat spinach flat bread stuffed with potato, cauliflower and paneer)

Hara Bhara Paratha
Hara Bhara Paratha

When I get bored of having regular roti, I love to prepare stuffed paratha because it is healthy and we don't have to prepare a separate side dish :) . As the stuffed paratha itself is heavy, I always prefer to have a lighter side dish like curd, pickle or cabbage stir fry. This time, even in stuffed paratha, wanted to make something different and came across to this hara bhara paratha in google. Impressed by the stuffing, made it the same day and it was super tasty and yummy.

Try out this super delicious paratha at your home and share your feedback in the comments section below

Ingredients ( yields 8 small size parathas or 6 medium size paratha)

For the dough:

wheat flour - 2 cups (1 cup size = 150 ml)
spinach - 2 cups
curd - 3 tsp
green chili - 2
salt - as needed 

For the stuffing:

cooked and mashed potato - 1/2 cup
grated cauliflower - 1/2 cup
grated paneer (grated Indian cottage cheese) - 1/2 cup
cumin powder - 1/2 tsp
coriander powder - 1 tsp
garam masala - 1 tsp
salt - as needed
chopped coriander leaves - 3 tsp


  • wash the spinach leaves in cold water and grind it with yogurt and green chili to a smooth paste 
  • in a bowl, mix wheat flour and salt (add salt lesser than the usual quantity as we will be adding some salt to the stuffing as well)
  • add grounded spinach mixture and mix it with the flour
  • add water little by little and form a smooth dough
  • cover it with a wet cloth and set it aside for atleast 30 minutes
  • in another bowl, mix mashed potato, grated cauliflower, grated paneer, cumin powder,
    coriander powder, garam masala, chopped coriander leaves and little salt
  • After 30 minutes of resting the dough, make 8 small size balls
  • make small balls from the stuffing as well. The size should be smaller than then dough ball
  • press the dough ball gently using hands and place the stuffing in the center
  • cover the stuffing with the dough ball 
  • press it gently with hands and dust some flour 
  • roll it to a small circle using rolling pin
  • heat a pan and cook the paratha both sides until brown spots appear
  • Serve hot with curd, pickle or any other side dish of your choice.

  3. The flour mill is also useful in grinding not just wheat but also other grains like maize, rice, spices and nuts. It helps to save a lot of time and to grind wheat finely or coarsely according to individual requirements. Domestic flour mill online in India
