Paneer Paratha, a very scrumptious Indian bread variety. Most of us are Paneer lovers. We can make many varieties of dishes with paneer. Paneer Paratha is another variety of Paratha where the Indian Bread are stuffed with crumbled paneer (Cottage cheese). Punjabi's make homemade paneer with which they do parathas. My daughter loves Paneer Paratha than any other Parathas. Paneer Paratha is a tummy filling dish and usually served with Plain Curd or Raitha or Chutney.

Paneer Paratha Recipe

Ingredients:
WholeWheat Flour1 Cup*
Paneer 200gms 
Green Chilli2
Chopped Coriander Leaves1 tablespoon
Cumin Powder1/2 teaspoon
Ajwain / Carom Seeds1/2 teaspoon
SaltTo Taste
Ghee / Oil2 tablespoon


Method:
  1. Take wheat flour in a mixing bowl and add water little by little and knead it to a soft but stiff dough, cover the dough with a damp cloth and set it aside for 15 minutes

  2. I have used the store bought paneer which is refrigerated and hence I have soaked the paneer cubes in warm water for 10 minutes. If you are using homemade paneer then you can skip the soaking of paneer. After 10 minutes, I have drained the water and crumbled the paneer.

  3. Add chopped green chillies, coriander leaves,cumin powder, ajwain and salt and mix well. Make 4 equal sized balls out of the paneer filling. Now our filling is ready to get stuffed in

  4. Make 4 balls out of the wheat flour dough. Using a rolling pin, roll a dough ball to a small circle.We have to roll it in such a way that all the sides are to be knead well leaving a small mountain in the middle. This is to make sure, the filling is nicely fold inside the paratha. Keep a ball of Paneer filling in the middle of the rolled dough. Carefully close the dough sealing all the corners of the dough and make sure filling is properly sealed. Keep repeating the step for the rest of dough and filling. Now lets roll the stuffed dough balls.

  5. Take each stuffed dough ball and roll it by dusting flour on both the sides. Roll it gently and slowly to make sure the stuffing doesn't comes out. Also using a fork prick the edges so that bubbles are not forming while rolling so that to make sure stuffing doesn't come out. Heat a tawa. The tawa should be smoky hot. Place the rolled paratha in the tawa. Cook the paratha till you start getting bubbles. Gently flip it on the other side and cook the paratha. Apply butter on the cooked side. Again flip the paratha to the other side and apply butter and cook the paratha till both the sides turns nicely golden brown color.Remove paratha from flame. Repeat the same for rest of the parathas

  6. The yummy Paneer Paratha is now ready to serve with Plain curd or Chutney!
