Paneer Paratha is a Indian flat bread with spiced indian cottage cheese stuffing. I had some home made paneer and prepared this paratha for evening snacks. This paratha is served with curd. Paneer is always my favourite. That too I love the recipes made with home made paneer. Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing Indian Paneer Paratha.
Cook Time: 15 mins

Table 1: For Outer Cover
Atta \ Whole wheat flour
Table 2: For stuffing
Chopped coriander leaves

For Outer Cover:
- Make a soft dough by adding atta, salt along with water. Allow it to rest for 15 minutes. Take a fraction of dough and make balls of medium size lemon. For me, it yielded 4 balls.
- Mix all the ingredients from table 2. Take a fraction of dough and make ball of slightly bigger size of ball prepared for outer layer . The number of outer layer balls and stuffing balls should be same.Take a outer layer ball, using hand pat gently and flatten to 2-3 inch diameter. Keep the stuffing in centre and close the outer layer.
- Heat dosa pan. place the paratha in dosa pan. Drizzle 1/2 tsp of ghee or oil if needed. Cook till golden spots appear on some places. Turn and drizzle 1/2 tsp of oil. cook until golden spots appear on the other side also. Repeat the process for remaining flatten dough balls.
