Cheese Paratha Recipe | Cheese Stuffed Paratha Recipe

Today's recipe is a kids friendly recipe - cheese paratha/cheese stuffed paratha. This is one of my kids' favorite paratha that I often make for their breakfast. These parathas tastes great when they are served hot or warm and is not suitable for lunch box as the cheese gets hard when cooled. If you want to pack for lunch box, add less cheese and more vegetables(onion, capsicum, carrot) so that the moisture from the vegetables gives softness and taste to the paratha even after cooling.

Cheese Paratha is nothing but a regular wheat stuffed paratha with cheese(i used Mozzarella ) and spices filling. I did not use much vegetables here as per my kids' preference, and also chopped the onion and capsicum finely..just only for flavor.

I made this last winter on a cold afternoon, so within few minutes the hot cheesy parathas turned cold and couldn't able to click the gooey cheesy texture. May be i should try this now as weather is too hot these days. If possible, will make it sometime soon and update the pictures. Now off to the recipe..
