Paneer Paratha

Who doesn't love to enjoy hot hot parathas ? I don't think anyone can resist the delicious parathas, be it aloo, gobi or paneer..which are the popular ones !! This is the first time I am preparing Paneer parathas, though I have made aloo parathas a few times. Whenever I used to make the parathas, I was scared as they sometimes tear off when rolled out with the filling inside. But now I feel pretty ok with this. If you seal properly the dough balls after filling is kept and roll out gently after that, then there shouldn't be much problems. Yesterday I made these parathas for dinner and they came out delicious. 




What you need?

For the dough:

1.5 cup Wheat flour
2 tsp Oil
Salt to taste
Water for kneading

For the filling:

1.5 cup grated Paneer
3/4 tsp Chilli powder
1/2 tsp Garam masala
1/2 tsp Coriander powder
1/4 tsp Chaat masala
1-2 tbsp Yoghurt (to keep the filling moist)
few Coriander leaves finely chopped
Salt


How to prepare?

Combine flour, salt, oil to form a dough by adding required water. Knead the dough, cover it with a wet cloth and keep aside for 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile prepare the filling. Combine well all the ingredients listed under For the filling.

Pinch out  lemon size balls out of the dough. Flatten each ball and roll it a little. Keep 2-3 tbsp of filling at the centre. Gather all the edges together and carefully seal it forming a ball again. Now roll this out very gently to a medium size paratha. 

Heat a tava on a medium flame. Place the paratha on the tava and apply a little oil/ghee. Flip it over and apply a little oil/ ghee again. Cook on both sides until brown spots appear. Serve hot with yoghurt and pickle.


Notes:
* You can add green chillies instead of red chilli powder.
* You can also add finely chopped onions, ginger, lime juice, cumin powder to the filling.



Have a great weekend my friends !!
