Chilli Cheese Paratha

Step 1.

Combine the plain flour, a pinch of salt and hot water (from the kettle) in a bowl and mix with a wooden spoon. Once it is cool enough to handle, knead the dough for 5 minutes until smooth. Pour in a tablespoon of oil and knead through. Cover and rest for 10 minutes

Step 2.

Meanwhile, prepare the garlic chilli oil. Grate the garlic into a small microwaveable bowl with the chilli powder, ¼ teaspoon salt and 2 tablespoons of oil. Microwave for 1 minute to soften and cook the garlic.

Step 3.

Roughly chop your coriander and finely slice your spring onions.

Step 4.

Divide the dough into quarters, and then the quarters into halves to form eight even balls.

Step 5.

Roll two balls into large circles about 2mm thick so they are about the same size. Spread ½ a teaspoon of the chilli garlic paste on to one circle, sprinkle on a handful of shredded mozzarella and shredded cheddar. Sprinkle on your coriander and spring onions, then press a second dough circle on top – you can use some water along the edges to help it stick if you need it too

Step 6.

Heat up a frying pan and pour in a small glug of oil. Slap on the paratha and cook on a high heat on both sides for 2 minutes. Flip using a large spatula.

Step 7.

Cut into quarters and serve whilst still hot and oozing with cheese.

If you have a lower spice tolerance, you can decrease the amount of chilli powder but remember the cheese will help cool the dish down too.
