Onion parathas are simple to make parathas without any veggies. Some days we run out of any veggies due to some reasons  like cleaning or just back from travel. Those days we feel like have some home cooked food and our body wont allow to go out and buy some veggie.

       Every home we keep onion and atta if we go out too. So we can make a yummy filling dish out of it and treat the taste buds with our home cooked food. I love the caramelized sweet taste of those cooked onions inside the parathas. I have it without any side dish as it has some spices inside it. Do try this and let me the outcome.
