Paneer Paratha

Parathas are delicious to eat and some parathas are even easy to prepare. Although the general notion about paratha-making is, it is very time consuming. But not this paneer paratha, nuh huh! The paneer stuffing for paneer paratha is easy to make. It’s a matter of then rolling out the parathas and serving them.
To make life easier I generally knead whole wheat dough earlier and set it aside for gluten formation. Just before making parathas I prepare the stuffing in 5 minutes and roll out soft fresh parathas. Mouth-watering indeed, isn’t it? There are many ways of rolling out parathas, I have shown the sandwich method of making parathas here.

Paneer paratha can be served with simple fresh yogurt/curd along with green chilli pickle. It’s a delicacy and kids love this paratha. It is soft and some black pepper makes it very well seasoned and gives a very nice taste. Try more parathas from FOI, aloo paratha, gobhi paratha, tomato paratha, beetroot paratha. More such recipes, methi thepla, whole wheat puri etc also available on FOI. Eat and enjoy!
