  • 1/4 cup sweet corn kernels
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cup coriander leaves, chopped
  • 3 to 4 green chillies, chopped
  • 1 tbsp pizza sauce (you can also mix tomato ketchup and schezwan sauce in equal quantity, ie 1/2 tbsp each)
  • Butter for roasting the paratha

  • 1 tbsp oil


For filling

  • Take a mixing bowl and add bell peppers, cabbage, onions, olives and corn kernels. Mix well.

  • Add chopped coriander and mix once more. Keep aside.

For dough

  • Once the dough is kneaded, add oil and knead for two to three minutes more.
  • Let it rest for five to six minutes.

For paratha

  • Make small balls of the dough and roll them out into round chapatis.
  • On one chapati, spread sauce spread all over. Carefully add the filling on half the side of the chapati.
  • Fold the other half on the filled side. Seal the edges with a fork.
  • Heat a flat bottomed pan. When hot, roast the filled paratha till both the sides are cooked.
