Sweet Coconut Paratha is a tasty stuffed paratha recipe filled with a mix of coconut, sugar, cardamom powder and nuts. Meetha Paratha can be served with curd or pickle.
Recipe type: Breakfast, Snack
Cuisine: Andhra
Serves: 3
  • Wheat Flour – 1 cup
  • Salt – ¼ tsp
  • Oil – 1 tsp
  • Water for kneading the dough
  • Grated coconut – 1 cup
  • Powdered sugar – ¼ cup
  • Cardamom powder – ½ tsp
  • Rice Flakes/Poha – 1 tbsp, grind to powder
  • Mixed nuts – 2 tbsp (almonds, cashewnuts and walnuts)
  • Oil – 1 to 1 ½ tbsp for cooking the parathas
  1. For this sweet paratha with coconut stuffing, take 1 cup of atta. Sieve it. Add a pinch of salt, and a teaspoon of oil. Knead well into a soft dough with a little water. Leave to rest for 10 minutes.
  2. Grate the coconut and powder the sugar. Grind the poha to a fine powder. Poha is added to ensure moisture doesn’t seep out when coconut is mixed with sugar. Grind the mixed nuts coarsely.
  3. For the filling, mix grated coconut, powdered sugar, cardamom powder, rice flakes powder and powdered dry fruits together and keep aside.
  4. Divide the dough into 6 equal portions. Roll out the balls of dough into about 3 inch diameter discs.
  5. Place about 3 tbsp of the filling in the centre of the rolled out paratha. (Ideally the stuffing should be a tad more than the dough portion). Pull the edges of the rolled dough together and seal. Dust with flour and gently roll out into slightly thick parathas.
  6. Heat a pan and place the rolled out paratha on it. Let it cook on medium heat and then flip it over. Drizzle ½ tsp of oil over it and along the edges. Once brown spots appear on both sides, remove from pan.
  7. Serve Kobbari Coconut Paratha hot for breakfast or as a snack.
