Paneer Paratha ~ Indian Cottage Cheese Flatbread !






















Many of you know by now that in my family everyone enjoys Paneer immensely...either is it savoury or sweet ...and Paneer Paratha is one of them....as soon as they are ready in no time they vanish from the dining table...Especially my daughter always requests for it.  She wouldn't eat her cereals in the morning but if there are Paneer Parathas she jumps out of bed and runs to the kitchen...and I don't mind making it for her as paneer parathas are very healthy for kids too..you will get Protein, Calcium and Carbohydrate in one meal...So what are these Paneer Parathas...?

Simple yet irresistible paratha...a Punajabi Cuisine, stuffed by spicy Indian Cottage Cheese...Making Paneer Paratha is not very difficult thing but yes if you try to make paneer at home too..but hey if you are a person like me make paneer one-two days before...just keep in a fridge and make parathas thinking you bought paneer from shop...:)



You will need:-
  • 1 cup Paneer (Indian Cottage Cheese)
  • 1 onion
  • 2-3 Green Chillies
  • 1/4 cup fresh coriander
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1 tsp Cumin and Coriander powder
For the Dough:-
  • 2 cups Wholemeal flour
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp Carom seeds (Ajwain)
  • 1-2 tbsp oil

Method:-
Make the stuffing by mixing Paneer,Onion,Coriander and chillies in a blender.  Don't add salt yet. Now mix dough ingredients in a big bowl and add enogh water to make dough.  Make small portions and make them into balls.  When you are ready to make parathas add salt and Garam masala into the mixture.  Take a ball and roll it round by rolling pin. Leave it a side, now make another one and on this flattend Chappati spread the paneer mixture on it.  Now put another Chappati on top of it and lightly seal the edges.  Heat a griddle and fry both sides with little oil or ghee till brown patches appear.  Reapeat this with the rest of the dough and paneer mixture. and Serve hot with butter, Pickle or any type of Raita...Enjoy as much as my daughter did...
