My son likes paratha in any form – be it aloo paratha, methi paratha or gobi paratha. Yesterday, I tried making Paneer paratha for the first time and my son became a fan of it. It is very simple and easy to make.
|Grated Paneer||– 200 g.|
|Green chillies||– 3 (Chopped finely)|
|Ajwain or Omam||– ½ tsp.|
|Garam masala||– ½ tsp.|
|Coriander leaves||– a handful (chopped finely)|
|Salt||– as needed or 1 tsp.|
|Oil||– for making parathas|
For Making the Dough:
|Wheat flour||– 1 cup|
|Water||– as needed|
|Salt||– as needed|
|Oil||– 2 tsps.|
- Mix flour, salt and water to make a soft pliable dough. Add oil at the end and mix well. Keep it for half an hour.
- Crumble paneer with our hands finely.
- In a vessel, mix crumbled paneer with garam masala, salt, ajwain, chopped green chillies and chopped coriander leaves.
- Knead the dough to make it smooth. Make equal sized balls out of the dough.
- Roll the dough into medium circle and keep the paneer stuffing inside and close all the edges towards the middle.
- You can flatten the dough with hands, and roll out to thick parathas by dusting flour in between.
- Heat a pan, and cook the parathas on both sides over medium flame. Press gently to ensure even cooking while its getting cooked. Add 1 tsp. of oil on both the sides when cooking.
- If you make and give this I am sure that your children would love it.
