Kothimbir Paratha

Kothimbir is also known as kothmir, cilantro, coriander. These parathas are very easy to make and the ingredients needed are usually available in any Indian household so no prior preparations is needed as well.


1 cup wheat flour
1 bunch cilantro, finely chopped
1 tbsp oil
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/4 tsp garam masala
2-3 green chillies, finely chopped
salt to taste
oil for frying parathas


1: Mix wheat flour, red chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, garam masala, chopped green chillies in a big bowl.

2: Now add oil, coriander leaves and knead the flour into a soft stiff dough using water and keep aside for 30 minutes. Cilantro is going to release some water when you let the dough rest, so do not add too much water to the dough.

3: Make equal sized balls of dough. Roll the ball in dry flour and make a round paratha.

4: Heat a tawa and and put the rolled out parathas on it and cook for a minute.When bubbles start appearing, apply a little oil and flip it over to the other side. Do the same on the other side.

5: Parathas are ready! Serve hot with curd or pickle of your choice.
