Chicken Keema Parantha

Punjabi food is wholesome and full of rustic flavour. The custom of cooking in community ovens or tandoors prevails in rural pockets even today. The cuisine is characterised by a profusion of dairy products in the form of malai, paneer and dahi. The dals are a speciality of this type of cuisine, made of whole pulses like black gram, green gram and Bengal gram.  They are cooked on slow fire, often simmered for hours till they turn creamy and then flavoured with spices and rounded off with malai for that rich finish. The food is simply delicious.
The most unique thing about cooking in a tandoor is the smoky flavour that the food gets making it tastier. Moreover it is a healthy way of cooking since minimum fat is required and the food generally gets cooked in its own juices thus retaining its natural flavours. Besides it is not only easy to digest, it is also very hygienic.  In conclusion one can safely say that it is through tandoori cooking that Indian cuisine first got globally acknowledged.

Ingredients for Chicken Keema Parantha Recipe

  • Whole wheat flour (atta) For covering 2 cups

  • Salt to taste

  • Ghee 4 tablespoons

  • For stuffing

  • Chicken mince 250 grams

  • Yogurt 1/2 cup

  • Salt to taste

  • Ginger-garlic paste 1 tablespoon

  • Green chillies chopped 1-2

  • Oil 2 tablespoons

  • Cumin seeds 1 teaspoon

  • Onions chopped 2 medium

  • Red chilli powder 1 tablespoon

  • Coriander powder 1 tablespoon

  • Garam masala powder 1 teaspoon

  • Fresh coriander leaves chopped 2 tablespoons


Step 1

To make the stuffing, mix the chicken mince, yogurt, salt, ginger-garlic paste and green chillies. Store it in the refrigerator to marinate for at least an hour.

Step 2

To make the dough for the covering, sift the flour with salt in a deep bowl. Add three-fourth cup water and knead into a stiff dough. Divide the dough into eight equal portions and roll into balls. Cover with a damp cloth and set aside for fifteen minutes.

Step 3

To cook the stuffing, heat the oil in a non stick pan. Add the cumin seeds and when they begin to change colour, add the onions and sauté till translucent.

Step 4

Add the red chilli powder and coriander powder and sauté till the oil separates from the masala. Add the marinated chicken mince and cook on medium heat till it is cooked and dry.

Step 5

Remove from heat and add the garam masala powder and coriander leaves and mix. Set aside to cool. Divide into eight equal portions.

Step 6

Flatten each ball of dough and place one portion of the cooked mince in the centre. Gather the edges together, pinch them together and press to seal well. Shape into a round ball. Roll out each ball into a disc of six-inch diameter.

Step 7

Heat a non stick tawa and place the parantha on it and cook for a minute. Flip it over, drizzle a little ghee. Flip it again and drizzle some more ghee and cook, turning till both the sides turn golden brown.

Step 8

Serve hot.
