Paneer Parathas

I love stuffed parathas and so I prepare it often with different stuffings. There is another convenience in making stuffed parathas. You don’t need to make any gravy or curries for this as we do for the regular chappathi. U just can have it with raita or pickle.




Ingredients

Wheat flour-2 cups
Paneer- 1 cup grated
Onion-1 chopped finely
Coriander leaves-2 tsp chopped finely
Turmeric powder- ¼ tsp
Chilli powder- ¾ tsp or acc to taste
Green chilli- 1 cut finely
Garam masala- ½ tsp
Salt to taste
oil

Method

Add salt and water to the wheatflour and knead to a soft and smooth regular chappathi dough.
Heat 2 tsp of oil in a pan and add the onions and green chillies. When the onions turn transparent add the turmeric, chilli and the garam masala powders. Saute for a minute and then add the grated paneer. Fry for 2 minutes and finally add salt and coriander leaves.


There are 2 ways by which u can do stuffing..
1) Take a medium sized ball(slightly bigger than golf ball) from the dough and roll it into a thick chappathi(4” approx). Keep the filling in the center and fold the sides of the chappathi towards centre. Press in the middle slightly and dust with plain flour. Roll out into chappathis(6” approx) slowly without giving much pressure.


2) Take a medium sized ball and divide into two. Make small chappathis . keep the filling in one chappathi and close it with another. Dust with flour and Roll out into chappathis without giving any pressure .


Heat tawa and then place the chappathis and drizzle oil on the sides. Turn over and cook till it is golden brown. Serve hot with raita of ur choice and pickles.(u can apply butter on top if u like )

Hi Prema,

Those parathas look divine. Just a quick note to let you know that i made kolukattai (your mum style) and it was a big hit at our place.

A big thank you to you and your mum.

Hi Prema,

Looks yumm! I love Paneer kulchas and have always been daunted because they seem laborious. Have always eaten them only in an Indian Restaurant. Your recipe makes it seem so simple. Will try it soon.
Cheers

Prema, for me the second method is always easy to make--I always end up messing by doing the first method-- when I make stuffed paratha's...my husband would ask for some sidedish:( sometimes I wonder what is the purpose of making stuffed paratha's---it infact doubles my workload:( This a different recipe:)
