Mutter Paneer Paratha

   I use to make paneer recipes monthly once or twice.This time i didn't go for curries n gravy rather tried paneer stuffed paratha along with peas.The parathas were so flavorful,soft and yummy..yum..yum..paneer.Kutties liked it a lot n it was a filling dinner with raitha n some fruits.

Ingredients for Dough
  1. Whole wheat flour    2  cups 
  2. Salt        to taste 
  3. Water         as needed 
  4. Oil        2-3 tsp 
Take a mixing bowl,add flour and salt mix well.Using water make it to to smooth dough,then add oil and knead for a minute and cover it and keep aside for at least 15-20 minutes.

Ingredients for Mutter Paneer Filling
  1. Paneer 8 oz(grated) 
  2. Frozen peas 3/4 cup 
  3. Onion 1 medium (finely Chopped) 
  4. green chillies 4 no.s

  • Cook peas in microwave for 3 minutes,drain and keep aside.

  • Heat a oil in a pan,add cumin seeds when it splutter add finely chopped onions and saute nicely till turn golden brown. 
  • Then add the grounded peas-chilli mixture and saute till raw smell leaves. 
  • After that add all dry powders and enough salt mix well and fry for a minute. 
  • And add grated paneer and stir fry for another 1 minute so that masala get nicely coated with the paneer.
