Paneer Paratha / Cottage Cheese Bread

Star Rating WIDGET PACK

Everybody loves paneer, right? Specially when there is a spicy paneer stuffing inside a paratha, I am always up for it. This was my first try on 'paneer paratha' and I just nailed it. Believe me it is much easier than 'aloo paratha'. I made those in breakfast with 'chana masala' and the combo was really gorgeous. Parathas came out perfectly crispy and soft. The taste was unforgettable, we enjoyed them a lot. I'm damn sure that 'he' will request me to make them soon again.
