Grated paneer- 1 cup
Cumin powder- ¾ tsp
Coriander powder- ¾ tsp
Red chilli powder– 1 ½ tsp or according to your spice level
Garam masala powder- ¾ tsp
Chopped cilantro leaves- ¼ cup
Wheat flour-1 cup
Hot water- ½ cup
Salt- to taste
To make the dough: Mix the wheat flour with half cup of hot water, 1 teaspoon oil and ¼ teaspoon salt. Mix it well and make it into dough, cover and keep aside.
For the filling: Mix grated paneer with rest of the spices mentioned above, chopped coriander and salt.
Take a little bigger than lemon sized dough. Roll it to ½ inch thickness and smear ½ tsp oil. Add 2 tbsp paneer mixture in the center. Lift the sides of the dough and bring it to the center. Flatten it a little and roll the dough to ¼ inch thickness by adding gentle pressure to the rolling pin and making sure the filling doesn’t come out. You can sprinkle little wheat flour and roll the rotis making sure the dough do not stick to the bottom.
Roast it on a hot griddle adding little ghee or oil on both sides. Serve it with yogurt and pickle or any other side dish of your choice.

What perfect parathas. Now I think you should give the recipe for the vegetable pickle.

Paneer parathas are the best. This is in fact the only paratha that my family relish it. I like that fluffed picture on top.
can you believe i’ve never had a paneer paratha… looks so good. i usually eat potato or spinach or dal parathas. i’ll have to ask my mom to make it. 🙂
