         This idea of making capsicum cheese paratha flashed when I read about a review in FB about Annalakshmi at Chennai. The review had the menu which they served for aadi perukku. It had this capsicum cheese paratha. So the instant I read about it, I decided I am gonna try it. Coz, its an awesome combination, capsicum and cheese are made for each other!  I have had lunch buffet in Annalakshmi few time here in SG.  And we order food for Aj’s Birthday party from Annalakshmi every time we plan his party. Here they run this restaurant for a noble cause, so we are double happy for not only tasty food, for something good too. And about this paratha, sure the kids at home are gonna love this simply for the combination. So why not try this for your family and I am sure you yourself would love it too.

Capsicum cheese paratha recipe

Indian Lunch
Prep Time: 15 mins    |  Cook time: 5 mins per paratha    Makes: 5


Wheat flour/ atta  1 cup, levelled 
Water  as needed 
Salt  as needed 
Capsicum  1/2 cup 
Grated cheese  1/2 cup 
Chilli flakes  1/2 tsp 
Oil  for pan fry 


  1. First mix flour, salt with water (1/2 cup approx) and prepare dough. Keep aside. Chop capsicum into tiny cubes. Defrost cheese and add it to the capsicum along with chilli flakes.1-capsicum-cheese-paratha
  2. Mix well and now, knead the dough and divide into 5 equal balls. Roll out and keep the capsicum mixture in middle.2-cheese-capsicum-paratha
  3. Close it by pinching towards middle and roll out carefully both sides with generous dusting into thick parathas.3-capsicum-cheese-paratha
  4. Cook over hot tawa with oil drizzled. Cook in medium flame to ensure even cooking. You can press gently with spatula for even browning.4-capsicum-cheese-paratha


    • The water quantity is only a guidance and it may vary +/- 1 tblsp.
    • Give standing time of atleast 15 mins for the dough to become smooth. Knead again after resting for smooth dough.
    • I used both red and green capsicum, to make more appealing for kids.
    • You can add chilli powder or pepper powder instead chilli flakes.
    • You can also add chilli flakes and any Italian herb thats left over from your pizza order.
    • Do not reduce cheese as it gives a great taste along with capsicum
    • I used grated mixed cheese I bought for making pizza.
    • You can replace cheese with paneer too. 
    • The cheese melts when its being cooked, so when it cools, it will get solidified again.

I really wanted to show how it was inside, but I could not resist myself finishing the parathas after clicking. Tasted great with boondi raita and pickle.

  32. I tried this for tonite's dinner ... We loved it.. My husband n my 1.5 yr old baby happily ate..

    Thanks much

  33. hey..yesterday i tried dis..and came out very well....Thanqqq for quick parathas....:))...even i tried vegetable cutlets for my kid international food sharing day(today)came out excellent..his miss is asking for more..:))))

    Thanqqqq for best receipes

  34. any tips for making the paratha without any breaking? i find difficult in stuffing capsicum and it easily tears the paratha.. i tried aloo, mixed veg paratha but didn have much trouble.. thanks..

  35. Hi tried the recipe today for lunch...had some capsicum and cheese left over and this was perfect. Only problem i couldnt roll out the chapatis big enough as they started tearing and the capsicum started coming out no matter how flour i dusted them they were small the ones in your picture look bigger

  36. Hi tried your recipe the fact that it doesnt have so many ingredients. Only issue i couldnt make the parathas a decnet size as the capsicum started coming out and the paratha was tearing. So they were quite small.....thanks on the tips to defrost the cheese, it made the grating so much simpler...such a small tip dunno why i never thought of it before :)

  37. This looks sooo yummy but can you please tell us which cheese did you use?

  38. hi Raks..I love ur receipes ..I also faced the same problem...capsicum came out and tore the paratha...couldnt make it at all. Please guide what must have went wrong? in the picture, how come your atta looks white like we have to add maida also?

    Thanks in advance!

    1. May be the atta is too thin, make bigger atta balls and roll thick slowly and gently. Knack is in rolling.
      Sure I have not added maida. Its ashirvad atta only.

  39. Hi Raks, This is Gayathri Sarangarajan from Chennai.
    I am a recent visitor of your blog. You are doing a great job and I am really inspired to try your recipes at home. I did try a few recipes and all those came out absolutely superb. I am just a beginner i.e., I started cooking only after marriage (it is 3 years now I got married). I used to do a recipe earlier and when I do the same next time I mess up totally, but the recipes I do seeing your blog really comes out very well every time. Thank you for your blogs and do keep blogging. BTW very nice pics you present and it makes the learning very easy. Nice kitchen wares you use and very nicely you present things. The intro you give for each recipe really appeals every time in a new way. Really great great job you are doing and thank you again for the blogs.

  40. Hi Rak's, I am a recent visitor of your blog. All the recipes in your blog are really tempting and am inspired to try every recipe of yours. I have tried a few of your recipes and those all came out really well. I am really learning a lot from your blogs and every little thing from your blog helps me so much. You are doing a very nice job really and keep blogging.
