3 Paneer Paratha Recipes

You can make healthy parathas with the three recipes mentioned below. The key to preserving both taste and health is using top-quality ingredients (farm-fresh and naturally grown without any preservatives). For instance, in these recipes we will learn how to make the “parathas” using Khapli atta” and A2 cow ghee. 

Khapli wheat, being an ancient grain, is rich in fibre and nutrients. It aids in digestion and provides sustained energy. A2 cow ghee contains healthy fats and is easier to digest as all milk solids undergo elimination during production

This combination makes these parathas a wholesome choice for individuals with cholesterol and diabetes concerns. Below are three traditional paneer paratha recipes that you can make using its ingredients.

1. Classic Paneer Paratha

The classic “paneer paratha” is very popular across India. This dish combines the Indian cottage cheese with the paratha. Here is the process to make it:

Ingredients

For Dough

Khapli Atta– 300 gms

Salt – 1 tsp

Water as needed

A2 cow ghee- 1 tsp

    For Stuffing
    • Paneer / Cottage Cheese – 1 cup crumbled
    • Green Chilli – 1 chopped finely
    • Cumin Seeds / Jeerakam -1 tsp
    • Chilli Powder – 1 tsp
    • Coriander Powder -1 tsp
    • Garam masala powder -1 tsp
    • Turmeric Powder – ½ tsp
    • Salt to taste
    • Oil-1 tsp
    • Coriander leaves / Cilantro for garnishing

    Now we will make the paratha.

    Process

    The preparation process takes place in two phases:

    Phase1: Filling Prep
    • Heat oil in a pan, adding cumin for a burst of aromatic essence. 
    • Crumble paneer into the mix, ensuring that you mix them well. 
    • Add green chillies and chilli powder to the mixture. 
    • Stir it and then add turmeric, coriander, and garam masala powders. 
    • Stir in a generous handful of fresh coriander leaves and season with salt. 

    Transfer this savoury mixture to a bowl, allowing it to cool entirely. The fill must achieve a dry consistency; any residual moisture could hinder the stuffing process.

    Dough Prep
    1. Mix flour and salt in a mixing bowl. 
    2. Gradually add water, forming a soft, pliable dough. 
    3. Apply a touch of oil and knead until you get a smooth texture. 
    4. Let the dough rest for 15 minutes.
    5. With the rested dough, portion it into equal sections and start to make the parathas. 
    6. Take a portion, flatten it slightly, spoon in the prepared filling, and seal the edge securely. 
    7. Carefully roll the stuffed dough into a well-formed paratha.
    8. Heat a tawa and cook the paratha on both sides, applying ghee for that perfect golden crispiness. 

    Once cooked, transfer the paratha to an insulated container and serve them alongside the side dish of your choice.

    While this classic paratha goes with any side dish and is perfect for all occasions, you need a recipe for a special event. Why not add a little minty freshness to it, like in this minty paneer paratha recipe below?

    2. Minty/ Pudina Paneer Paratha

    Refresh your taste and palate with mint or ‘pudina’ paratha. The mint is not only refreshing but also aids digestion, alleviates nausea, and provides relief from headaches. It is high in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.

    4. Gradually add water to the mixture and knead.
    5. Cover it and let it rest for 30 minutes.
    6. Divide it into 3-4 equal parts.
    7. Take one portion and roll it into a thin circle. Apply ¼ teaspoon of oil on it.
    8. Sprinkle some dry wheat flour on top of the oil. This will make the paratha flaky.
    9. Start folding the paratha diagonally from one end. Now you have a round again.
    10. Roll it, applying equal pressure, into a circle. Don't roll it too thin. In the meantime heat a skillet/tawa on medium heat.
    11. Once the skillet is hot, transfer the rolled paratha to it.
    12. Cook the paratha from one side until it turns golden brown. Then, flip it.
    13.  Allow the other side to heat up till it turns golden brown. Apply some oil to the other side before flipping it over.
    14.  Flip again and press the paratha with your spatula to cook the oiled side.
