Tofu Paratha (Tofu Flat Bread) 【豆腐烙饼】

I went shopping with my neighbor S couple of weeks ago, she asked if I know where to buy good silken tofu, so I brought her to an Asian market, I was curious what she wanted the silken tofu for, she told me that she makes tofu paratha and her kids loved it! 

She sends a few parathas to us later and my son A and I finished them all, they are very tasty and soft, not to mention high in protein!

So I wasted no time to ask for the recipe and made these parathas for NS over the weekends, he was also very impressed and had 6 parathas for his lunch!

Whoever created this parathas recipe is really a genius and whoever it might be, I say : " Thank you". 




Ingredients: (yield 8-10 Parathas)
1/3 box (150 gm) of Silken Tofu
1/3 cup of chopped coriander leaves/Cilantro
1/4 cup of cubed tomato
1 1/2 - 2 cup Whole Wheat Flour (Atta)
1 tsp Ajwain (Caraway seeds)
1 tsp Sesame seeds    Optional
1 tbsp Ghee
Some more ghee for frying 

1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
1/2 tsp Chili powder  Optional
1/2 tsp Salt or to taste

材料: (做 8-10张饼)
1/3 盒 (150 gm) 嫩豆腐 Silken Tofu
1/3 杯 香菜/芫荽 切碎
1/4 杯 番茄 切碎
1 1/2 - 2 杯 全麦面粉/Whole Wheat Flour (Atta)
1 小勺 葛缕子 (Caraway seeds)  Optional
1 小勺 芝麻    Optional
1 小勺 姜蒜蓉
1 大勺 Ghee/酥油
1/4 小勺 姜黄
1/2 小勺 辣椒粉 Optional
1/2 小勺 或适量 盐

1. Mashed the tofu and all ingredients but Whole wheat flour/Atta until mushy. You could do this with hand. I used my Stand mixer.

2. Add the whole flour in a few batches until the dough form a soft ball, it should take around slightly more than 1 1/2 cups of flour, if the dough didn't form a ball, add 1-2 tbsp of flour and knead further.

3. Let the dough rest for around 10 minutes, then divide the dough into small balls around the size of Ping Pong. Roll it into a round disk the size of a dessert plate, around 2 mm in thickness.

4. Heat up a cooking pan and add a little ghee, pan fry the flat bread until cooked at medium heat, turn once or twice in between to cook both the side until well cooked and several brown spots showing on each side of the bread. 

Serve with dal or any types of vegetables/curries of your choice.

1. 用手或机器把所有材料(除了全麦粉)压烂混匀,千万不要加水,缓缓地加入全麦粉揉面,至面团成型为止。大约需要一杯半左右的全麦粉。
2. 让面团饧10分钟左右,然后揪出乒乓球大小的小面团,搓圆,然后擀开成小盘子大的面饼,厚度大约 1-2mm。
3. 热上一个铁板或者平底锅,加入一点酥油,把面饼两面煎黄即可。



  1. 我做了你的椰菜花paratha,好好吃呢,这个我一定也要bookmark起来。

    1. 你的椰菜花切得碎一点,然后要挤掉一点菜汁这样就不会漏了。
