Paneer Paratha - day 5 of blogging marathon

 Today is the 5 th day of blogging marathon.I am going to present my recipe in the category "Regional cuisine".Parathas are from punjabi cuisine.There are so many variations in the size ,stuffing ....Here I am going to give u the recipe of paneer parathas.
 Parathas are indian flat bread which literally means 'layers of cooked flour'.It can either be circle or triangle.The stuffing can be anything like aloo,peas or paneer.It depends on one's imagination and taste .
This was in my mind for a long time.but now only had an oppurtunity.



Ingredients:


For the dough:
1.Wheat flour                     -         2 cups
2.Water                               -          1 cup
3.Salt                                    -          1/4 tsp
4.Sugar                                 -          1/2 tsp
5.Oil                                      -           2 tsp


For the filling;
1.Paneer                               -         1 cup    (grated)
2.Chilli pwdr                       -          1/2 tsp
3.Green chillies                  -          1 tsp    (minced or 3 numbers)
4.Garam masala                 -           1/2 tsp
5.Cilantro                            -           1 tbsp (minced)
6.Salt                                    -           as needed
7.Oil                                      -           1 tsp


Method:
* Mix all the ingredients under for the dough and make a soft dough.
* Cover and keep it aside.
* take a microwave safe bowl ,add all the ingredients except paneer,cilantro and cook it for 30 secs.
* Now take it out and mix the paneer with the masala in the bowl.
* Now add the minced cilantro and give it a stir.
* Divide the mixture into equal parts and roll them into soft balls.


* Make sure that the no. of dough balls are equal to no. of paneer balls.
* Dust the board with wheat flour and place the dough ball in it.
* Pat it ,so that the outer edges are thin and the inner portion is thick as shown in the pic.
* Now place a ball of  paneer in the middle and cover it with the dough.
* Roll it into a thin roti ,by pressing it on one side only.
* On a heated tava,cook the paratha on the opposite side first....this makes the paratha to blow.Flip it around and press it with the spatula.After both sides are cooked, drizzle with some oil .
* Serve it with a dallop of curd ..
A glass of lassi goes well with parathas...


Chk the recipe of Aloo paratha here


Note:
As paneer will be bland ,it is adviceable to spice it up a bit more than u do for other parathas.Before ,cooking the paratha, tap off the excess flour .This helps the paratha to unchange its color.
