Cauliflower-Paneer Paratha

One of the easiest recipes that can be prepared for a breakfast (or in fact goes with any meal) is a stuffed paratha. They are very filling and can be served with butter, chatni, yogurt( dahi in hindi) or any dipping as per your taste. My daughter likes to eat it with jam or tomato ketchup.
This is most sought after dish in my family.


1. Ingredients
a. For stuffing/filling
1 cup grated cauliflower
1 cup grated paneer
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 big green chilly cut into peices
1 inch grated ginger
1 tbs coriander leaves finely chopped
1/2 sp salt
1/2 sp corriender pd
1/2 sp cumin pd
1/2 sp garam masala
1/4 sp amchoor pd


b. For dough
2 cups wheat flour
1/4th cup wheat flour for dusting
Salt to taste
Enough water to make dough
2-3 tsp ghee or butter for frying paratha’s


2. Cooking (total time: appx 30 mins)
For the outer cover, mix all ingredients to a soft dough and keep it aside for 30 mins.
For the filling, mix all the ingridents.



Take a small ball from the dough and roll it.  place 1 tbsp filling on it

and cover it by gathering the dough together and make it as a ball. Before we roll out the paratha  flour the counter lightly and pat the ball to roll out like a pattie. When we roll out, the filling will just surface up through the cover just tearing it, so it should be done by soft hands. This stuffing should be distributed evenly. 


 
Place it on a hot tava When the underside is partly done, turn over.




Flip it again & pour 1 tsp oil on the paratha.

By turning over the paratha on both sides, brown spots will appear & it will get thoroughly cooked.

Paratha should look like this from front


and it should look like this from the back side.



And now it is ready to serve.
