    Stuffed with Goodness

    Other than one-pot meals, that make dinner time a simple casual affair, I also love having stuffed parathas. Parathas are Indian flat breads mainly made of whole wheat which can be stuffed with almost anything under the sun! Not only is it deliciously ful-filling, but it can also be served without much consideration of side dishes. Eaten with yoghurt or a simple helping of tangy spicy pickle, they are treat for anytime of the day. Parathas were always seen as a special treat at my home. From special Sunday brunches to our never-ending midweek demands, mom would often indulge us. Among other stuffings, paneer is always the most loved at my home. With hubby dear and me, both religious paneer lovers, this comes as no surprise. Its also no wonder that I consider it as a comfort food. In fact, come to think of it, many Indians would swear that stuffed parathas definitely qualify as comfort food. And I believe that the ones stuffed with paneer just tops that list! Paneer (Cottage Cheese) Parathas

    Ingredients: 2 cups whole wheat flour (atta) 1 cup shredded paneer (cottage cheese) 1 tsp fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped 1/4 tsp red chili powder 1/4 tsp garam masala salt, to taste 3 tbsp ghee water as needed Method:

    Saute shredded paneer in a bit of oil with salt, coriander leaves, red chili powder, and garam masala, and set aside.

    Mix flour (atta) with salt and one tbsp of ghee and form into a smooth dough with water.

    Separate dough into golf-sized balls and set aside.

    For each dough ball, roll out the dough into a small circle and put around one tbsp of paneer mixture in the centre. Bring the ends of the circle together and form into a ball.

    Seal the edges completely so that the stuffing does not come out. Roll out these dough balls and into a 6 inch circle.

    Fry on a heated pan adding a bit of ghee around the edges to crisp it up.

    Serve hot.

    man, these are so scrumptious! I have a hard time not eating these when I go to an indian restaurant and getting so full I cant eat anything else!

    Your blog kills me because it gives me a serious hankering for Indian food and I live like 50 miles (seriously) from the nearest Indian food restaurant. We also have nut allergies in our family so it is always hard to eat our at an Indian food place now because of fear of cashews, etc.

    Maybe I will try this recipe and see if I can do it justice!

    Sailu: Me too Sailu! Its always a treat.

    Nika: Hi Nika! Thanks a lot for all the compliments. You should definitely give it a try. Like I've always said, Indian food is infact very easy to make, it just seems exotic.

    Once you can cook for yourself, you won't need to drive 50 miles to enjoy good Indian flavours. Do give it a try and let me know how it goes.

    Ashwini: I especially love the lime and mango pickles, sooooo good!!

    Wow, Meena! It sounds delicious.... Stuffed Parathas with yogurt and pickle are yummy!

    I have had Paneer Paratha only once at a Potluck in Pune. The old lady who made that, stuffed it with fresh paneer and lotsa coriander leaves and very finely grated green chillies and a bit of salt. It was so fresh and full of flavors in every bite. Your recipe seems so delicious that I remembered the other time I had paneer paratha :)
