Indian breakfasts and paratha are synonymous, it is comfort food for many. In most of the North Indian homes, breakfast or brunch is incomplete without paratha, it could be plain paratha or stuffed paratha smeared with ghee or butter and what can be better with than these scrumptious and moreish Palak, Paneer and Green Peas paratha.




Usually, regular parathas are prepared plain or various kind of stuffing such as potato, peas, paneer or cauliflower or lentils, actually stuffed parathas are a good way to experiment with spices and flavours, this paratha recipe of mine is a little different but totally mind-blowing.

Each and every morsel is bursting with delicious flavours that you won't forget in a hurry!

I got inspired to cook this paratha from the famous Indian veg curry Matar Paneer and Palak Paneer. So  In this recipe, I have prepared outer layer dough with spinach puree and stuffing is prepared with crumbled paneer and green peas. Although I have used many ingredients, still these parathas weren't overpowering with strong flavours, when you bite each and every ingredients flavour was coming through nicely.

These filling and stuffed paratha are perfect when you want to have something delicious and well balanced but don't want to make an elaborate meal. These parathas don't need many accompaniments with it as they are full of flavours, only plain yogurt or a cup of masala chai would do the job too.

These parathas are brimming with goodness and I think this paratha is my new family favourite as when these parathas served on the table, I hear nothing, not a single word because, because everyone was filling their tummy :) The sound of silence is a sign that everyone on the table were satisfied. For me, that is good enough and after finished the breakfast, I heard lots of 'wow' and 'this is the peak of your high standard'!  My daughter who never likes to look at aloo ka paratha gobbled down a couple of this one and took a couple with her for a next morning breakfast and now they want me to put this paratha recipe on our regular menu :)

  9. I agree, Silence at the dinner table is the sign of a good dish. Who wouldnt enjoy these green healthy beauties? I make them often at home as Spinach is extremely healthy and instead of the everyday flatbreads, the parathas are always a welcome change.
