Being a vegetarian, we do not have much options while eating out here. Cheese and Onion is the most, sometimes the only combo as far as any pastries, sandwiches or pies are concerned.. I got the idea of making this Cheese and Onion Paratha from that and it turned out awesome. Chotu just loved it, so am sure it would be a hit among kids. Its simple and quick to make too..

Now to the recipe..


[Preparation Time-10 mins : Cooking Time-20 mins]


For the stuffing

  • Cheese (grated) – 1 cup
  • Onion – 1 (finely chopped)
  • Chilli powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Chaat Masala Powder– 1/4 tsp
  • Coriander leaves (chopped) – few
  • Salt – as needed(see tips)
  • Oil – 1 tsp

For Paratha

  • Wheat Flour – 2 cups
  • Salt – as needed
  • Water – as needed


  • Take a wide vessel and add wheat flour & salt. Add enough water(little by little) and make a soft dough. Cover it and keep it aside. Heat a pan with oil and add finely chopped onions and saute until transparent. Let it cool.

Yummy & easy Cheese and Onion Paratha is ready.

Serve hot with any raita or as is.



  1. Keep cheese in the refrigerator and make the stuffing just when u are ready to make the Cheese and Onion Paratha, else the stuffing will melt/spill out while cooking the parathas.
  2. Be careful while adding salt as cheese has salt in it.
  3. U can add garam masala in the stuffing too.
  4. Enjoy these Cheese and Onion Paratha while they are hot and cheesy.
