masala paratha recipe with step by step photos – spiced unleavened whole wheat flat breads. masala paratha is a variation of plain paratha with some spices added in it. spices are also called as masala or masale in hindi, hence the name.

since both rotis and parathas are staple in my home, i try making various variations. masala paratha is one such delicious variation. i have already shared some more variations like cabbage parathamatar paratha, lauki paratha, vegetable paratha and palak paratha.

masala paratha are spiced but not spicy or hot. though you can increase the red chili powder and garam masala powder to increase the spiciness in the parathas.

you can serve masala paratha with any dry veggie dish or gravy dish. these spiced parathas also tastes good with some sour or sweet mango pickle or lemon pickle.

in fact you can also have them with chai. masala parathas with chai is one of our favorite combinations. but on this day, i had made aloo methi to go with the masala paratha. these parathas stay soft, so you can even pack them in tiffin.
