Protein packed Paneer Paratha
School days means double stress for working mothers as they decide and plan for every day meals. Breakfast being the most important dish of the day it becomes necessary to keep it healthy and yet wholesome. There are many variations in which you could try this paratha. I have kept it simple yet with blast of flavors.
  1. In a plate take grated paneer or cottage cheese.
  2. Add in chopped mint, coriander, red chilly powder, turmeric powder, roasted cumin and salt. Mix well. This is your stuffing.
  3. Make wheat dough as you usually make. Make small balls of the wheat dough.
  4. Flatten the dough in your hand and add 1 spoonful of stuffing. Bring the ends together and seal the dough ball. Flatten again on your palm and roll it out.
  5. In a heated griddle or tawa, place the rolled paratha.
  6. Cook on both sides and roast with ghee.
  7. Once both sides of paratha is nicely browned (see image) take it off the tawa. Repeat the same for other parathas.
Recipe Notes
  1. I served with dates pickle and raita flavored with red chilly powder and salt.
  2. Be careful with salt. Since the stuffing and wheat dough will have salt.
  3. I like to make thin parathas. In case of thick parathas use bigger dough balls and stuffing.
