Parathas are usually made with stuffed vegetables such as potatoes, radish, cauliflower, or leafy vegetables or paneer. They are very popular in Indian cuisine. Parathas are very easy to make and can be served just with raita/curd. If you have sudden guests at home and didn't have much time to cook I will say try making parathas. They are very healthy, tasty and quick to make.


Today I am blogging about Paneer paratha which I made over the weekend.

Here is the recipe for the same.

Ingredients:

Filling:
Paneer
1tbsp of chopped coriander
1tsp dry fenugreek leaves (optional)
red chili powder( as per your spice level)
1tsp of chat masala
salt as per taste

Rotis:

1 cup of wheat flour.
1tbsp oil
salt


Procedure:

Mix the flour with salt, 1tsp of oil and water to make it like nice soft dough. Knead the dough and keep it aside.

Grate Paneer. Mix grated paneer, chopped coriander, green chilies, chat masala and salt. Make small balls of the mixture.

Take the dough and divide into small balls. Roll the dough into small round shaped dusting with flour to avoid sticking onto the platform.

Place paneer mixture bring the ends to the center from 4 to 5 points. Close the ends properly so that the mixture will not come out.

On a hot griddle or pan place paratha on it. Cook both sides till it turns golden color drizzling little bit of oil or ghee.
