Paneer Paratha

Hi Readers,

Here is Paneer Paratha recipe for you. In my household, paratha does not go alone. My husband likes to have any kind of sukhi (dry or stir-fried) curry with it. So, I have presented this with french beans and potato curry. As such Paratha goes well with raita/curd and some pickle.

For The Dough
3/4 cup all purpose flour (maida)
3/4 cup whole wheat flour (gehun ka atta)
2 tsp oil
salt to taste

To Be Mixed Into A Stuffing
1 1/2 cups grated paneer (cottage cheese)
2 tbsp finely chopped coriander (dhania)
1 tsp finely chopped green chillies
few cashew-nuts roasted and broken into pieces
few kis-mis
1 tsp red chili powder
1 tsp dried mango powder (amchur)
1/4 tbsp ajwain(carom seeds)
salt to taste

Other Ingredients
whole wheat flour (gehun ka atta)
ghee for cooking

For the dough
Combine all the ingredients and knead into a soft, smooth dough using enough water.
Divide the dough into 5 equal portions. Keep aside.

How to proceed
Divide the stuffing into 5 equal portions. Keep aside.
Roll out one portion of the dough into a circle of 75 mm. (3") diameter using whole wheat flour for rolling.
Place one portion of the stuffing in the center of the circle. Bring together all the sides in the center and seal tightly.
Roll out again into a square of 125 mm. (5") using whole wheat flour.
Cook on a hot tava (griddle), using a little oil, until both sides are golden brown.
Repeat with the remaining dough and stuffing to make 4 more parathas.
Serve hot.
