The research was conducted to develop soyflour and evaluate the quality characteristics of soyflour enriched paratha. In this study, wheat flour was replaced with soyflour at different levels i.e. 10, 15, 20, and 25%. Developed products were evaluated for their sensory attributes and chemical composition. Results showed that paratha incorporated with 20% soyflour was the most acceptable. Nutrient analysis showed soyflour contained 44.07g protein, 198 mg calcium and 131.55 mg isoflavone, whereas most acceptable paratha contained 18.39 g protein, 43.33 mg calcium and 19.94 mg isoflavone.Thus, the results indicated that by incorporating soyflour, it is possible to enhance the sensory and nutritional quality as well as isoflavone content of wheat paratha.
