Paneer Paratha (Cottage Cheese Paratha)

This scrumptious paratha is extremely delicious and easy to make as well. It is stuffed with scrambled paneer and perked up with coriander, mint, green chillies and spices. There is a mix of flavours and textures which makes the paratha even more delectable.

Paneer is a good source of calcium, which helps build strong bones and teeth, and also prevents osteoporosis. It doesn’t require too much oil to cook, and if cooked right with herbs and minimal spices so it is not heavy on the digestive system either. Also, paneer is both easy to make and digest.

To Be Mixed Into A Stuffing

1 cup scrambled paneer
1/4 cup mint leaves
1/4 cup finely chopped coriander leaves
1 1/2 tsp finely chopped green chillies
salt to taste
1/4 tsp chilli powder
little turmeric powder
little chilli powder

For The Dough
1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
Water as required to knead the dough
Oil for cooking

1. Combine the flour with enough water and knead into a semi-stiff dough. Cover and keep aside for 15 to 20 minutes. Divide into 6 equal portions.
2. Combine all the stuffing ingredients. Mix well.
3. Then divide into 6 equal portions.
4. Roll 1 portion of the dough in to a small circle. Put a portion of the above stuffing in the middle, and close it by bringing all the edges in the middle and roll it again to make it a paratha.
5. Heat a griddle and cook the paratha on both the sides till light brown in colour using a little oil.
6. Repeat with the remaining dough and stuffing to make 5 more parathas.
7. Serve hot with ketchup or green chutney. Enjoy!
