I am not a big fan of stuffed parathas, and recognized their importance and how people love them only during my B.Tech days. In the mess it was served as breakfast every sunday-Aalo and pyaz paratha (potato and onion paratha), and there used to be a longggggggggggg queue to get them. My roomie and I used to stand in the queue alternately 😉
But my hubby is big fan of stuffed paratha, infact, he blames me for not cooking them so often. He is fasting every thursday these days, so I thought of making stuffed paratha for breakfast this Friday morning. Since weekend (here Friday and Saturday are “chhuti waala din”) means waking up late and all, so I did all the preparation (prepared stuffing and knead the dough) a night prior to it. Ok, so now lets move on to the recipe.
Paneer (cottage cheese) – 75-100 gms
Green chilli – 1 pc.
Ginger – 1/4 tsp (grated)
Salt – to taste
Black pepper powder – 1 pinch
Onion – 1
Red chilli powder – 1/4 tsp
Coriander leaves – 1 tbsp (finely chopped)
Atta (wheat flour) – 2 cups
* Knead the atta the way you make it for regular chapati/roti.
* Cover the dough and keep it aside.
* Now grate the paneer. Chop the onion and green chilli the finest way you can (else it can tear the paratha).
* In a bowl, take grated paneer, chopped onion and green chilli, grated ginger and all the other ingredients (salt, black pepper powder, red chilli powder) and mix them well.
* Now make stuffed paratha as we usually do.
Serve hot with chatni or sauce.
P.S: If you want, you can also fry this paneer masala and you will have a fried paneer stuffing!
