When I am in the mood for something more exoctic than simple roti or chapatti, I try adding different ingredients to the flour to come up with something unique. One such experiement is the simple paneer paratha. 🙂 It is a healthy dish as it combines carbs with an equal amount of protein. You can have this with just simple yogurt and pickle for a complete meal.
Whole Wheat Flour – 2 cups
Grated Paneer – 1 cup
Green Chillies – 2 (finely chopped)
Finely chopped Coriander Leaves – 3 tbsp
Red Chilli Powder – ¼ tsp
Turmeric Powder – 1 pinch
Grated Ginger – 1 tsp
Milk or water – as required
Amchur Powder – 1 tsp
Salt – to suit taste
Take the whole wheat flour in a mixing bowl.
Add all the ingredients except the Oil. Mix them well. Add 1 tbsp of Oil and mix again. Add Milk or water little by little and knead it to a smooth soft dough. Allow it to rest for about 20 minutes.
Divide the dough into equal portions.
Roll each portion into a medium thick Parotha. Dust the roll and the board with whole wheat Flour so that the Parotha does not stick to the roll or board.
Heat a pan and place the Paratha on it.
Cook for a few seconds till brown spots start appearing at the bottom of the Paratha. Flip the Paratha and let it cook on the other side for 20 to 30 seconds.
Spread little Oil or Ghee on the upper side, flip and cook the other side. Apply Oil or Ghee on the upper side. Now, cook both the sides till the Paratha is cooked well.
Serve with Yogurt, Green Chutney or Aam Ras etc.
