Pyazi Masala Paratha (onion Stuffed Flat Bread)

This is the stuffed variety of Onion Paratha. A recipe perfect for breakfast or evening snack. It is midly spiced so doesnot require any accompaniment. The secret to get the best taste is using lots of fresh chopped coriander leaves and chopped green chilies. Adding sugar is optional but I recommend to use it to balance the taste.
