PANEER PARATHAS

Paneer parathas is another interesting recipe. The main advantage of preparing parathas is that it does not need any sidedish. The filling itself consist of lots of flavour and it goes well with any pickles or curd or raita. There are some different preparation of his recipe ie some mix the stuffings along with the kneaded flour and roll them just like normal roties or sometimes they just mix all the ingredients along the paneer and then stuff them as usual as stuffing parathas. In my recipe I fried all the ingredients to bring out the extra flavours. Here its goes

INGREDIENTS FOR DOUGH.

2 cups Wheat flour.

1 tbs Ghee or Oil.

Salt to taste.

Water as required.

INGREDIENTS FOR FILLING.

100 gms Grated Paneer.

1 cup Chopped Onions.

1/2 cup Tomato.

1 tbs Chopped Ginger and Garlic.

1 tsp Jeera.

1 tsp Red chilli powder.

2 tsp Coriander powder.

2 tsp Garam masala.

1/2 tsp Turmeric powder.

1 tsp Oil.

Coriander leaves few.

Salt to taste.

METHOD FOR MAKING DOUGH.

Make dough out of wheat flour as you would do for the ordinary chapatti. Set aside with a thin wet cloth so that the dough does not get dry.

METHOD FOR MAKING FILLING.

Heat oil in a kadai, add jeera,ginger garlic and onions. Fry them till the onion are translucent and gives a nice aroma, add the tomatoes and fry.

Now add red chilli pdr, coriander pdr, turmeric pdr, garam masala. Saute it for a while. Add grated paneer and lastly garnish with coriander leaves and keep aside.
MAKING PARATHAS.

Divide the dough into small balls. Roll out the dough into small puries and insert filling over the puries. Make a tight swiss roll. Press together and reroll of full size. I just shaped the parathas in hearts to make it somthing different from normal parathas.

TO SAUTE PARATHAS.

Preheat a frying pan on a medium heat. Add 1 tsp oil and place the paratha. When its slight brown apply little more oil and continue flipping the paratha frequently. Cook until both the sides are slight brown.

I served them hot with raita.

Hi Suma, the shape is so pretty. I can never make parathas with the filling made into "a tight swiss roll" with the dough. I usually mix the dough along with the stuffing and masala, and then roll them and bake. The parathas in the pic look so perfect:-) Will try this.

Thanks for dropping by Suma. Even though paneer is my favorite, I have not trieed these parathas earlier, because my husband does not like paneer. So I used tofu instead. But your parathas look very good that I also want to try it. Did you use a knife to cut the parathas in heart shape?
