Paneer Paratha

Here comes yummy Paneer parathas.Paneer is Indian form of cottage cheese.Either get it from Indian grocery store or make it fresh at home.See How to make paneer from my earlier posts.Make stuffed parathas from this stuffing and you'll surely say - "Hmmmmmm Yummy".


For Dough

Whole wheat flour/atta 2 cups

Oil/ghee 2 tsp

Salt 1/2 tsp


For filling
Paneer/cottage cheese grated 1 cup

Onion 1 small
Green coriander leaves
Cumin seeds 1 tsp
Garam masala 1 tsp
Green chili 1-2

Oil/ghee for frying parathas

Dry flour for dusting


1. For dough mix wheat flour,salt,oil,water and knead it very well to make a soft dough.Cover it and keep aside for 15-20 minutes.
2. Take paneer in a bowl and add chopped onions,coriander leaves and all other filling ingredients in it.Mix well and remember this mixture should be dry( if it is not dry then fry it for a while).
3. Now make small balls from the dough and roll it in a small circle.
4. Put the stuffing on it and close it from all the sides.Gently pat it with your palm and apply dry flour on both sides and roll it again to make a paratha.
5. Heat a tava/griddle and cook this paratha on it over medium flame.Apply oil/ghee on both sides and gently press it with a spatula to make it crispy.
6. Take paratha out of tava/griddle when it is golden brown in colour.Serve it with curd/raita, pickle/chutney.

Note: Add salt to the stuffing just before making parathas otherwise it will be watery.
