Paneer Paratha


Easy to make

Perfect for Breakfast

Whole Wheat Flatbread

Main Ingredients



Whole Wheat Flour

Green Chili

Garam Masala

Pomegranate Powder


Step 1

In a bowl, grate the paneer with a box grater or you can also crumble using your fingers. Add onions, green chili and freshly chopped cilantro.

Step 2

Add the spices - red chilli powder, garam masala, anardana (or amchur powder) and salt. Mix everything well. The filling is now ready.

Step 3

In a large bowl, combine atta (whole wheat flour), 1 teaspoon oil and salt. Add enough water (in small increments) and knead to make a soft and smooth dough. Make the dough smooth by kneading it with your fist. Add some water to your hand and knead 2-3 times. When you press your finger against the dough, it should leave an impression. This is the right consistency of the dough.

Step 4

Take a medium-sized dough ball (about 55grams each). With the help of your palms, roll it and then flatten it lightly. Dip the ball in dry flour and place on the rolling base. Roll out a roti of about 5 inches in diameter.

Step 5

Next, optionally spread some ghee. Scoop out some paneer stuffing and place it in the center, leaving about 1 inch of space from the sides.

Step 6

Take the edge and make small pleats and gather the pleats to join in the centre. When the pleating is complete, the stuffing will not be visible and it'll look like a dumpling.

Step 7

Next, flatten this dumpling in the center, dip it in dry flour on both sides, and place on the base and roll it evenly. Keep rolling the dough as you would a pie crust, trying to maintain the same thickness throughout. Roll with gentle hands, applying equal pressure on all sides. Make sure the edges are not very thick. Apply dry flour as needed while rolling.

Step 8

Heat the tawa (skillet or griddle). Place the rolled paratha on the hot tawa. Cook until you start seeing small air pockets and the color of the dough starts to change.

Step 9

With a flat spatula, flip the paratha and top with ghee just enough to make the surface of the paratha greasy (about 1⁄2 teaspoon). Spread the ghee or vegetable oil evenly over the paratha with the back of the spoon. Now we want to cook until there are some brown spots on the paratha.

Step 10

Flip the paratha and top with ghee/oil on the other side. Spread it evenly over the surface. Cook until there are brown spots while pressing gently with the spatula. When both sides have golden brown spots, transfer the paratha to a plate lined with a paper towel.

 And it's ready!
