Recipe of Chef Ajay's Nutella Paratha




  • 1 cup Wheat Flour
  • Nutella Spread
  • Water (as required)
  • Ghee / Clarified Butter




1. Preparing the Dough:

  • Take wheat flour and gradually add water to knead it into a soft, slightly firm dough.
  • Ensure the dough is not too soft to prevent Nutella from leaking out.

2. Shaping the Paratha:

  • Take a portion of the dough and shape it into a round, flattened disc.
  • Press the center of the flatbread with a spoon to create a pocket-like shape.
  • Spread 1 tbsp of Nutella inside the pocket and seal it completely from all sides.
  • Place the stuffed pieces in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes to firm up the Nutella.

3. Rolling Out the Paratha:

  • After refrigeration, sprinkle some flour on the dough and gently roll it out into a flatbread (roti).

4. Cooking the Paratha:

  • Heat a tawa (griddle) on the flame. Place the flatbread onto the hot tawa.
  • Once one side is cooked, flip it over. Apply ghee on the cooked side and repeat the process on the other side.
  • Cook until both sides are golden brown and crispy.

5. Serving:

  • Your delightful Nutella Paratha is now ready. Serve it hot and enjoy this delicious treat, especially with kids!
