Soya Keema Paratha - Easy Veg Kheema Paratha Recipe

Soya Kheema Paratha Recipe
I tried Soya Kheema Paratha for the first time, though I had this in mind since the day I saw this veg kheema recipe idea in Tarladalal site. Amma makes mutton kheema with peas both dry and gravy version so adapted her recipe and made this simple veg kheema to be stuffed for the paratha. The lil one enjoyed it with tomato sauce and I loved it with onion raita and pickle...yum combo!

Easy Veg Keema Paratha Recipe

My Notes:

  • Make sure you squeeze out excess water, else it will become moist and rolling will be tough
  • Dont add more onion as it will be difficult while rolling.
  • Adjust spice powders according to your taste.
  • I love my parathas slightly thinner so rolled them thin, but its your preference roll it thick / thin as per your liking.
  • If you want to  skip whole spices then temper jeera and add sambar powder instead of garam masala powder.
  • I had soya chunks in hand so wanted to make use of it, but if you have readymade soya granules then go ahead with it excluding grinding.
