Keto Flax Paratha/Wrap

by Sophie

Keto flax paratha is low in calorie, low carb and super easy to make. And it’s not hard on your pocket too. Unlike almond or coconut flour rotis, these don’t taste dry and flaky. Instead these hold their shape perfectly and taste absolutely YUM!

This is a multi-purpose dough recipe. You can use these as flat bread or wraps, and add herbs and spices to make yum tortillas or Indian style roti or Parathas.

Keto flax paratha is thin, actually super thin just like India rotis. It tastes great with curries or as a wrap with some hearty veggie and protein filling.

Keep it plain or add some spices, chopped onions and cilantro to give it a paratha style look and taste. I don’t add oil or fat while cooking these Keto flax Parathas. But you can  always do depending upon the lifestyle and macros you follow in your diet goal.

For this recipe, I have taken brown and golden flax meal. The rotis made with gold flax meal taste better than that of brown. However, I never make flax rotis without any added spices and herbs. If you are taking only brown flax meal, then make sure to add some flavor agents such as spices, nutritional yeast, curry powder or seasonings of your choice to give it a palatable flavor.keto flax paratha

Cooking flax meal until a dough is formed is one best way to roll the dough to a thin paratha or roti. Making the dough with boiling water is another way to make a stiff yet workable dough. However, I like the first method the most.keto flax paratha

Step-3: Add herbs and onion:

  • Take the dough in a bowl. Add two tbsp of chopped red onions and finely chopped cilantro. You can also add grated ginger, minced garlic,  and chopped green chilies at this point. I added 1/2 tsp garlic salt because my dough was less salty.

any substitute for nutritional yeast? Can I use just cheese?

You can skip nutritional yeast. It’s just for flavor anyway

Have you tried storing the dough in the refrigerator ever? I tried using seran wrap and it came out too dry in 2 days. Wouldn’t roll:(

I do store it in refrigerator every time. I suspect your dough has become too dry in refrigerator. I would keep it outside for at least an hour and knead it with little more hot water before rolling if the dough becomes too tight. Hope it helps.
