I did not know the difference between chapati, paratha etc until few years ago. It was always called chapati at home and my mom always folded it so we have layers. When she made aloo paratha while I was in college I thought that to be a very innovative chapati .. silly me .. fast forward now I sort of know the differences thanks to my good friend. So I have been experimenting with stuffed parathas lately with the help of my friend and hence this Paneer Paratha was born. Whole wheat combined with the goodness of paneer .. now we cannot go wrong right? Lets get started.
1.5 cups paneer shredded
1 small green chilly
1/2 cup cilantro
1/2 tsp chilli powder
2 cups wheat flour/atta
1 tbsp oil + oil for cooking the parathas
We first make the filling. Shred paneer and add the chilly, cilantro, chilli powder and salt.
Next make the dough. Take 2 cups flour. Add salt and 1 tbsp oil and crumble. Then using water make a soft dough. Pinch a portion of dough and roll it into a circle. Now do not fret if you dont get a perfect circle. Only the taste matters for the most part. Add a tablespoon of the filling. Bring all sides together and pinch it so the filling stays put. Now flatten it.
Start cooking the parathas. First dry roast on one side. Turn it over and apply oil. When cooked a bit turn over and apply little oil. I use a teaspoon of oil for each paratha.
Paneer parathas with goodness in every bite is ready to be served. We had it with channa masala. You can also have it with pickle or yogurt.
Sending these parathas to bookmarked recipes started by Aipi and Priya.
1. I make paneer at home and freeze it. So I just let it thaw and it crumbles pretty easily.
