Cheese Paratha - Lunch box recipes


Remember my post about Paneer paratha which I had posted 2 weeks back??? We all loved it at home and I made Cheese Paratha.

My little one loves cheese and she loved this paratha too and now on I have added this to my cooking menuJ.




How to make Cheese Paratha
Ingredients:
For the dough:
2 cups whole wheat flour/atta
Water
Salt to taste
For the Cheese stuffing:
200 Gms Cheese
1 or 2 green chilies, finely chopped * refer note
1 tsp chat masala powder
2 tbsp freshly chopped coriander leaves *refer note
Salt or rock salt as required (add less salt as cheese does not hold much salt)

Butter or oil for frying the paratha




Instructions
Preparing the dough:
Make smooth dough with the whole wheat flour and enough water.
Cover and keep aside.
Preparing the stuffing:
Grate or crumble the paneer with your hands.
Mix the chat masala powder, green chilies and salt with the Cheese.
Keep aside.

Filling Ready to be stuffed into the dough

Preparing the parathas:
Take a ball from the dough
Roll them into small rounds about 2 to 3 inches in diameter.
Place the Cheese filling on the round and seal them into a ball
With some dusting flour sprinkle on the rolling board or kitchen platform, roll the stuffed paratha
Heat the griddle/tawa.
Fry the parathas on the griddle with butter or oil till they are evenly browned and well cooked.
In this way make all the paneer parathas.

Serve paneer paratha hot with yogurt or butter or your favorite pickle.
