My take on the delicious chicken keema paratha. It's basically a flatbread stuffed with minced chicken. The flatbread only requires few basic ingredients and most importantly is it doesn't require any leavening agent.
Heat a pan with some oil, on medium heat. Add in cumin seeds and let it fry for a minute. Then add in onion, ginger, garlic and some salt. Sauté until the onion is soften and turns golden brown.
Add in the meat, tomato paste, garam masala and chili flakes. Continue cooking until the meat is fully cooked, at the same time breaking it into small pieces. Adjust seasoning if needed.
Once cooked, turn the heat off and sprinkle it the coriander leaves. Give it a few stirs and set aside to cool completely.
Add all of the paratha ingredients into a bowl. Mix everything together and then pour on a working surface. Lightly knead until everything comes together. Continue kneading for 5 minutes. Rest the dough for 20 minutes, covered with a clean kitchen towel.
Divide the dough into 4 pieces and form them into balls. Take 1 ball and roll it into a circle, on a lightly floured surface. Put ¼ of cooled filling on the center. Fold the edges and pinch the seams, forming a ball.
Lightly roll the ball into a circle and set aside. Repeat the same with the rest of the ball.
Note: cover the dough with a clean kitchen towel to prevent them from getting dry.
Heat a pan on medium heat. Place 1 paratha inside and brush the top with some melted butter. Cook for a few minutes until the bottom side turns golden brown with charred marks and then flip it. Brush the cooked side with some melted butter also. Continue cooking while pressing the paratha now and then so that it cooks evenly.
Remove from the pan and cover it with a kitchen cloth to keep it hot. Repeat with the rest of the un cooked paratha. Best served hot. Enjoy!
