Paneer & Mixed Veg Paratha
This is one of the tastiest parathas I have made so far. It is loaded with protein, fiber and vitamins. Instead of stuffing the veggies, I mixed them with wheat flour and made like rotis. I prefer doing this way to avoid the mess while rolling the dough.
Wheat flour-2 cups
Paneer(I used homemade) crumbled-1/4 cup
Turmeric powder-1/4 tsp
Chilli powder-1/4 tsp
Garam masala powder-1/2 tsp
Kitchen king masala-1 tsp
Coriander powder-1 tsp
Very finely chopped vegetables like:
Grated carrot-2 tbsp
Spring onions-1 tbsp(green part)
Coriander leaves-2 tbsp
Mix all the above ingredients and add water little by little and form a soft dough. Add a tsp of oil to the dough if it is sticky. Make small balls and roll them out into circles(slightly thicker than rotis) using a rolling pin. Place each rolled out dough in a hot griddle and cook both sides(by adding a few drops of oil or ghee around the corners) until golden brown.
Serve with raitha or pickle.
Note: If the veggies are not chopped finely, you will have a hard time rolling out the dough properly.
