How to make paneer paratha
Method

1.Take 1 cup of wheat flour, add 1 tbsp oil, salt needed and make a soft dough by adding water little at a time just as you make chapati dough. Knead it well, cover it and let it sit for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile we will prepare the stuffing for paneer paratha-

2.Grate or crumble paneer (check out homemade paneer recipe), add finely chopped ginger, green chilli, onions, cumin seeds, finely chopped coriander leaves, all the spice powder and salt needed. Mix everything well. Stuffing for the paratha is ready.Keep it aside.

3.Now make 5 equal sized balls out of the dough.

4.Roll it out into small circle, place a tbsp of stuffing in the center, gather and close it from all sides (like in Pic 6).

5.Now dust wheat flour and roll it out gently with the stuffing.

6.Heat a tava and place the rolled out paratha on it .Wait for bubbles to appear, then apply a tsp of oil  or (oil + ghee mixture) on the top and flip it over to the other side.

7.Spread oil on the other side also and cook both sides well until brown spots appear.

Repeat the same process for the rest of the dough.

Serve it with curd or pickle or chutney.
