Paneer Paratha

I wanted to try something different for dinner..Didnt  have much of veggies in the fridge..I had paneer in hand so I decided to make paneer parathas..They were too good than I had expected..This is how I prepared them..



For the dough

Atta / Wheat flour - 3 cups
Oil - 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Water to knead

For the filling
Grated paneer - 1 cup
Salt to taste
Garam masala - 1 teaspoon
Chilli pwder - 1 teaspoon
Coriander leaves - chopped 1 teaspoon


Knead the dough at set it aside for at least half an hour..This makes really soft parathas..
Meanwhile, grate the paneer and mix the other ingredients together..Make a small ball with this about 1.5 inches in diameter..Divide the dough into small balls.Knead out each ball into circles of 7 to8 inches diameter with the help of a rolling pin.Place he paneer mixture in the middle and close it by bringin the ends to the center to form a dumpling.Apply some more flour on the dumpling and knead it out again taking care the mixture doesnt come out..
Heat a nonstick pan and melt some butter and cook the paratha o both sides,two minutes on each side..
Serve hot with yoghurt and pickle/chutney of your choice..
The paneer can also be substituted by grated cheese and omitting the salt.
