Nutritious Paneer (cottage cheese) and Alu(potato) Paratha

Standard

It has been a long time since I have been online to post a recipe – not that I have not been cooking or trying out new recipes, but more like being too tired and too lazy to type out! But seeing the response I have received for this dish, I thought it would be good to post it and have people try it at home!

As usual, I was craving for something that would tingle my tastebuds and at the same time not be unhealthy. And raiding the refrigerator got me a chunk of paneer, a couple of potatoes and a few chillies……so decided to make paneer alu parathas

Ingredients

Paratha Dough

3 cups whole wheat dough

1.5 – 2 cups warm water to mix dough

oil (for frying and for the dough)

a non- stick frying pan

Filling

1 red onion diced very fine

2 green chillies diced fine

2 potatoes boiled and crushed

1/2 a pack of panneer crumbled or torn into v v small chunks

salt to taste

1/2 tsp chilli powder

1/2 tsp garam masala

1/4 tsp cumin powder

1/4 tsp coriander powder

finely diced fresh coriander leaves

1/2 – 1 tsp lemon juice

Method

For Dough, mix the 3 cups of flour with 1 cup of warm water in a bowl. Mix partially and add more water as required until you have the dough in a ball. add a teaspoon of oil and mix further to ensure the dough does not stick to the bowl. Cover and keep aside for 30 mins.

Get the filling ready by mixing all the ingredients together.

Take a medium sized ball of the dough and spread it out on a flat surface. Use some flour to ensure it does not stick to the surface. Put a small ball of the filling in the centre of the dough, cover it from all sides. Invert the new ball now formed and spread it out.

Take a pan, put a few oil drops and fry the paratha. Invert it and fry again until it is brown on all sides. Serve with pickle and curd!
