Spring Onion Paratha

These spring onion paratha are the perfect crispy bread to serve with curries. I served mine with a beef and vegetable soup instead of croutons. I loved the pop of salty mixture encapsulated in the folds of the dough.

Gift giving can be a contentious issue. I always take something as a hostess gift when we eat at friends. Not because I have to, or because it is expected. I do so because I want to. We very seldom sleep over at someone’s house, but when we do so I take something to show my gratitude, even when we stay with my cousin in England. We do not exchange Christmas gifts with anyone, and the only person I buy a gift for is Hannah. Birthday gifts are completely another story. Dave and I no longer exchange presents with one another. We agreed years ago to rather get each other a bottle of whisky as the gift. The boys get money from us, and have done so for a long time now.

I will not give anyone else money or a gift voucher as I like to get something special for the person. I do not buy birthday gifts for everyone that I know as it would get a bit out of control. And in the same breath, I do not expect gifts from anyone. I always feel such gratitude for the gifts I do get, no matter what it is. This year for my birthday I got to choose a lot of my presents. There were two reasons for this. Mostly because I really have everything I need and I have limited space. And the other was because it was a BIG birthday. I was so spoilt by friends who got me exactly what I wanted and one of them was a rolling pin which I used straight away to make these spring onion paratha.

  1. Your technique of spreading the filling, spiraling the dough, and then re-rolling is quite fascinating. I’ve never seen anything like it. I assume it distributes the filling perfectly!

  2. HI Tandy, I made a curry last night and these would have been perfect with it. What an interesting way to make the paratha, and your rolling pin was perfect for the job. thanks for sharing such an amazing recipe. I feel hungry just thinking about them. Cheers, Pauline

  3. These look absolutely fabulous Tandy! For some reason, I think I’d like them with my scrambled eggs in the morning for a tasty pick-me-up! I don’t like giving gift cards either and picking out personalized gifts is special for me. It’s really fun when “you nail it” and give someone something they love =)

  4. We don’t do gifts either Tandy. At our *ahem* age, there is nothing we want for. Like you, we prefer to spend the money on travel or, a true luxury we can enjoy. I have been waiting for this recipe as I saw you testing it on FB. AS I said, this is one of my favourite accompaniments. I hope I can make it soon.

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
