SERVINGS: 8 | CALORIES: 185 kcal

For the dough

  • 2 cups atta 260 grams, durum wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons oil 10 ml, I used avocado oil
  • water to knead the dough, around 3/4 cup 

For the filling

  • 200 grams crumbled paneer almost 2 cups crumbled paneer
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 green chili chopped, or adjust to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/8 teaspoon ajwain carom seeds
  • 1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • To a large bowl, add atta (whole wheat flour), salt, and oil.
  • 2- Start adding water, little by little to knead the dough.
  • Knead to a soft and smooth dough.  You can do this by hand.
  • Transfer the dough to a container and apply some oil on top. Cover with a cloth and let it rest for 20 to 30 minutes.
  • To make the filling, crumble paneer in a bowl or plate. Then add the cilantro, green chili, garam masala, ajwain and salt.
  • Mix everything together. The filling is now ready. Set it aside.
  • Once the dough has rested, divide it into 8 equal-sized balls. Roll each ball between your hands to make it smooth. Keep the balls covered else the dough will dry out.
  • Meanwhile, put a Tawa/skillet to heat on medium-high heat.
  • Now, take one of the dough balls and press it down with your hands. Using a rolling pin, roll it into a circle of 4 to 5  inch diameter. Apply around 1/4 teaspoon oil on the rolled dough.
  • Add the filling, around 1-2 tablespoons but remember to not over-fill.
  • Bring the edges of the rolled paratha together and pinch to seal the edges.
  • Then press the dough down with your hands and make it a little smoother.
  • Then roll the dough again using a rolling pin, into a circle of 7 to 8-inch diameter. Apply equal pressure while rolling the paratha so that’s it rolls evenly.
  • Now, place the rolled paratha onto the heated Tawa. Cook the side for a minute or two and then flip over.
  • Apply oil, round 1/4 teaspoon on the half-cooked side, and then flip again. Now apply oil on the other side as well. Press with a spatula and cook the paratha until both sides have golden brown spots on them.
  • Repeat with the remaining dough balls and make all parathas similarly.
  • Enjoy paneer paratha with a cup of chai!
  1. Use homemade paneer for best results.
  2. You can also add chopped onion to the filling if you like.
