Ingredients
To make Paneer Stuffing –
  • 1.5cups Finely Grated Paneer/Cottage Cheese
  • 1/2tsp Red Chilli Powder
  • 1/8tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1/4tsp Garam Masala Powder
  • Salt as required
  • 3-4tbsp Chopped Coriander Leaves
To make Paneer Paratha –
  • 2cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • Salt as required
  • Water as needed
  • 1/2tsp Oil
  • Butter/Oil to spread on parathaas needed
Instructions
  1. Mix whole wheat flour and salt. Knead well and make soft dough by adding water little by little. Mix a tsp of oil to the prepared dough and set aside covered for at least 10 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the filling- grated paneer, salt, red chilli powder, garam masala powder and finely chopped coriander leaves. Mix everything well.
  3. Make equal sized balls of the prepared dough.
  4. Similarly, make equal sized balls of the paneer stuffing.
  5. Take a ball of the prepared dough. Roll it into a thick roti.
  6. Place a ball of paneer stuffing at the center of the rolled out roti.
  7. Start pleating the dough from one side and close it from all the directions.
  8. Gently press it again and roll into a thick paratha. If required, dust additional wheat flour.
  9. On a heated tawa/flat pan, cook the paratha on both sides until golden brown spots appear. Spread a tsp of oil/butter on both sides of the paratha and remove it on to a plate.
  10. Serve hot with thick curd and pickle.
Note –
  1. Adjust the spices in the stuffing as per taste.
  2. Roll out a thick circle and place the stuffing at the center. Close and seal it well and make sure there are no air bubbles. Roll it slowly so that the stuffing doesn’t come out.
  3. Cook on medium/low flame until nice golden spots appear on both sides. Press the paratha with a ladle occasionally.
  4. I used oil to cook the paratha. Butter enhances the taste further.
