For those who are not familiar with it, paratha is an Indian flat bread made with whole wheat flour. So this Tempeh Masala Paratha is a stuffed paratha made using the minced tempeh cubes from Hello Tempayy. The best part about using tempeh as a filling for these parathas is that it does not make it heavy like an aloo paratha and at the same time is extremely flavorful.
It is a great breakfast option with a hot cup of tea. I love packing this in the tiffin box for my kids too. Since tempeh is high in protein, it is a great way to include a vegetarian protein option in your diet.
The flavor in the Tempayy paratha masala are just lip-smacking, filled with Indian spices and herbs that include coriander, cumin, garam masala along with some chaat masala and amchur powder for that extra punch. You can add any spice of your choice based on what you have on hand and the flavours you like.
