Paneer Paratha | Cottage Cheese Paratha Recipe

in theuncook9 months ago


Paneer Paratha Recipe is one of those dishes i usually reserve for weekends. If made in the traditional fashion its heavy on calories and not something one can afford to consume everyday. There are more healthier versions more veggies are incorporated and the flatbread is baked without any fat. However here we will look at the traditional recipe which is rich and tasty. You can always tone down the taste quotient and spike the health quotient as per your preference :)

TIPS

If you are vegan you can replace the Cottage Cheese with Tofu and Ghee with Cooking oil.

If you don't know how to flatten dough with stuffing, you roll two separate flat breads and sandwich with fillings in between. HERE is a Video of how to Roll Flat Bread.

If you can't even roll a single one, then get two ready made tortillas, sandwich with fillings and seal the edges with some flour dough.

Be careful when you knead the dough. Add water carefully. Too much water will ruin the dough. Just add some extra dry dough to balance if that happens.

Now that's a tasty yum Paneer Paratha. This is usually served with a huge lump of " Desi Ghee" | Home made clarified butter. While that option remains open you can also try a lump of Butter. If you are vegan you can try Margarine. This goes especially well with Spicy Indian aachar | pickles eg: mango/garlic/green chilli/lemon achar.
