Paneer Paratha is a pure delight for paratha lovers. This is a must try paratha Recipe. Any kind of stuffed paratha with some mango pickle and ginger-tea is my favorite breakfast during winters. The generous amount of stuffing is the key to any delicious paratha. Ask any North Indian and they will agree to this. 😉
Parathas are the most versatile breakfast. You can have them for breakfast, lunch, snack, or dinner. You can stuff the paratha with anything or everything and I am sure they will taste delicious.
Stuffed parathas are so simple to prepare and they are everybody’s favorite at least in my home it is. Cooking any stuffed paratha consists of a few easy steps- preparing the stuffing, kneading the dough, rolling parathas and cooking them. You can even prepare the stuffing a day before or ahead of time to ease your task. When served with curd and pickle, parathas make a whole meal in itself. No curry or side dish is required at all.
To make a paneer paratha you need very basic ingredients apart from the paneer. Just in case you do not have paneer at home then better you prepare fresh paneer at home. Trust me, nothing beats the taste of fresh homemade paneer. If you do not have any of them, it’s OK, create your own stuffing with your favorite or available ingredients. I keep doing that with Aloo Ka Paratha. 😀
A piping hot paratha with a cup of ginger-tea is all I need in this season for my breakfast. <3 Do try this recipe at home and let me know how it turned out for you. Play with the ingredients and make your own stuffing. Have a happy day.
