Vegetable Paneer Paratha

Vegetable Paneer Paratha
I love making/eating parathas. It is one way I load up everyday rotis. There are no talks at the table when parathas are on the menu. I usually serve them with yogurt or pickle. I usually make a big pile of them so that we can enjoy them for next days lunch also  - I cut them into strips/squares, whatever he prefers, next day for Ishaan’s lunchbox.

Few days ago we visited Kansas zoo with our friends. That was the first time, we went there with lunch packed. I made a pulav and my friend Amrita brought these tasty parathas. I loved her parathas. I might have eaten Ishaan’s share of paratha also :). I got her recipe and wanted to make them at home. I followed whatever I remembered. They came out so well. My little chef helped me make them. I had only peas and carrots with me, but a lot of other veggies can be used in the stuffing.

3 cups wheat flour
1 cup vegetables (like peas, carrots, potatoes, cabbage, cauliflower)
1 cup crumbled paneer
1/2 cup onion
2 tea spns ginger-garlic paste
1/2 tea spn garam masala
1/2 tea spn chilli powder
1/2 tea spn cumin seeds
A pinch turmeric
1/2 tea spn coriander-cumin powder
2 tbl spns chopped coriander leaves
