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

Hi Shilpa,
Does adding onions make it release water when you cook it with other vegetables?
I do not use onions much so can I avoid onion and garlic?


No, onions don’t release much water, when they are fried any water released is evaporated. You can leave onions and garlic out if you don’t like them.
