Cucumber Paratha is an interesting variation of stuffing used for making stuffed parathas. Although preparing this paratha with Cucumber stuffing is a tricky one, the final dish is really tasty and also tastes unique compared to other types of stuffed parathas. The tricky part is to manage the water that comes out of Cucumber and controlling the amount of water required for kneading the flour mixture without making it too soft for a good stuffed paratha.
