Onion Paratha in english would be called as Spiced Onion Flatbread. It is very easy to make with simple ingredients. Even does not require any prior preparation. Unlike my previous paratha recipes of Aloo Paratha (Potato Flatbread) and Gobi Paratha (Cauliflower flatbread) onion paratha is not the stuffed type. We would knead the onions in the dough. No need of preparing a separate stuffing.

Sometimes, when I have nothing to make for our meals, or when I am running late, at that time the onion paratha acts as a saviour, as onions are always there in our kitchen and could be made in no time. Or even when there are unexpected guests, make this onion paratha and you could serve it in breakfast with curd, or even in lunch and dinner with any dal or sabzi. 

The ingredients are very simple, the preparation is very easy. For better understanding I have uploaded the video..
