Cheeni ka paratha is one of those foods that can immediately transport you to childhood.

A popular dish that is often a staple in Punjabi food, Cheeni ka paratha can be a simple yet tasty start to your day.

Parathas can come in various forms with multiple stuffings. Cheeni (or sugar) is an easy stuffing to provide you with a satisfying alternative to your paratha cravings.

A sweet paratha like this is also a great way to give some nourishing food to kids who can have complaints about eating anything else. People with a sweet tooth are of course covered here too.

Making Cheeni ka Paratha

Step 1
For preparing the dough, take the whole wheat flour and sprinkle a pinch of salt. Add the teaspoon of refined oil and mix it with a cup of water. Knead this mixture well until you are left with a smooth soft dough. You need to cover the dough and let it sit for about 20 minutes.

Step 2
Once the dough is set, start pulling out small dumplings from it and make small balls out of them. Then, roll out the balls of dough into circular shapes. Evenly spread your desired amount of Jivãna Classic Sugar onto this circular surface. Bring the edges of the rolled circle into the center, sealing the sugar. Make a ball out of this sugar laden dough once again. Now, roll out this ball like you would to any paratha to your desired size.

Step 3
Once your paratha is rolled and ready, take a griddle (or tawa) and heat it. Place the paratha on the heated griddle. As the paratha starts looking cooked a little, flip it. Apply some ghee to the partly cooked side. After a few minutes, flip the other side and apply ghee to that side as well.

Step 4
Flip it every few minutes as you cook it. You will know your paratha is ready when it turns crisp and brown on each side. Note that parathas that have sugar for fillings tend to brown more than normal paratha as the sugars caramelize. This can also change as per the type of sugar used.

When your Cheeni ka parathas are ready, place them on a plate. You can garnish the paratha with a little more ghee on top to add extra flavour. You can also top it with a few even sprinkles of Jivãna Classic Sugar to add an extra crunchy and sweet texture to the paratha.

With that, you can now relish on your favourite Cheeni ka paratha. Have it any time of the day as you desire or even pack it for you tiffin. Kids will love eating this and sharing it with their friends during lunch break at school as well!
