Paneer Paratha is another variety of stuffed parathas, which is a favorite among kids. The Indian variety of cottage cheese called paneer is stuffed within roti. Traditionally the paneer is made fresh at home but you can also use store bought one. The Paneer paratha is flavored with some salt, chaat masala and cumin powder. You can also make a sweet version of the parathas by mixing the crumbled cheese with some sugar and cardamom powder.

Serves: 2


  • Whole-wheat flour (Atta) – 1 cup
