Paneer Parathas

The kids are home. It is the summer vacation – One is sick, the other volunteering and the third chilling with me! I am on FB and checking out my updates as I hear “amma, what’s for dinner” queries brewing in the background. I lay my eyes on some mouth watering paneer parathas that our blogger friend Divya or ChefinYou has posted. She is a versatile chef and has many interesting tips on her page, as I did find out clicking on to her blog. I was making karela subzi anyway and I thought this would make a great combo! It does not take beyond 15 minutes for prep time (she was not kidding) and beyond 20 to make about 10 of these delightful parathas. My kids, mother-in-law and hubby loved it. Will be blogging the Karela subzi next.

For about 10 partathas
2 cups of chakki atta (stone ground wheat flour)
11/4 cups of warm water
1 tsp of salt
2 tsp of oil
(I used my mixer to make the dough)
For the stuffing
1 cup of cubed paneer
3 green chilies finely chopped
1tbsp of fresh cilantro
I did as Divya suggested
I Soaked store bought paneer in hot water, drain after a few minutes and proceeded to crumble it
Knead or use mixer to make the dough soft, yet firm
Keep covered until you get the paneer crumbled, salted, and chilies and cilantro added
Make lemon sized balls of the dough
Roll out into rounds bigger than your palm, as Divya puts it
Make a smaller ball of the paneer and place in the center of the rolled out dough
Fold the dough over the paneer ball and pinch out any extra dough
Dust the rolling area with flour and roll out the paratha to the size of a tea saucer
Heat pan and add a smidgen of butter
Place the paratha on the melting butter and cook – repeat on both sides and with each
Serve hot with sides of your choice – In my case I made some incredibly tasty Bitter gourd masala subzi – heavenly!!!

Enjoy and thanks Divya :)
I will leave you also with this wonderful declaration made by my little one

  7. Looks very mouth watering. Would try it some time. I was wondering if we could just saute the panneer mixture a little bit in very little oil to loose the raw panneer taste, I think in Hotels they do it.
    Well would definitely give it a try. Thanks for sharing it.
