1/2 teaspoon paprika

Mix red onions, scallions, parsley, mint and basil together and add 1 cup of this mixture to the rest of the ingredients. Add 1/4 cup of cold water and knead the mixture for about 10-15 minutes into a medium soft dough. If necessary add more water. Shape the kheyma into a 2-3 inch high loaf on a serving dish and garnish the top with the rest of the onion and parsley mixture. Serve immediately with warm Armenian Peda bread or Greek Pita bread.
