Paneer Paratha is a delicious and wholesome Indian flatbread stuffed with a spiced mixture of paneer (Indian cottage cheese) and aromatic spices. This popular dish is enjoyed across India as a hearty breakfast or as a satisfying meal.

The origins of Paneer Paratha can be traced to the North Indian region, where parathas are a staple part of the cuisine. Paneer, a fresh cheese made by curdling milk with lemon juice or vinegar, adds a creamy and rich texture to the filling.

To prepare Paneer Paratha, the paneer is crumbled and mixed with finely chopped onions, green chilies, cilantro (coriander leaves), and a blend of spices such as cumin powder, coriander powder, turmeric, red chili powder, and garam masala. This mixture is then used as a flavorful stuffing for the paratha.

The dough for the paratha is made from whole wheat flour, water, and a pinch of salt. Small portions of the dough are rolled out into discs, and a portion of the paneer stuffing is placed in the center. The dough is then folded over the stuffing, sealed, and rolled out again into a flatbread. The paratha is cooked on a griddle with ghee or oil until golden brown and crispy on both sides.

Paneer Paratha is often served hot with yogurt, pickle, or a dollop of butter. It’s a wholesome and satisfying dish that combines the goodness of paneer with the comforting taste of freshly made flatbread.
