Stuffed Paneer Paratha


1. Wheat flour- 2 cups
2. Oil
3. Paneer (mashed roughly)- 1 1/2 cup
4. Onion (finely chopped)- 1 large
5. Green chilly (chopped)- 2
6. Garlic (chopped)- 6 to 7 cloves
7. Ginger paste- 1 tsp
8. Jeera (roasted)- 1 tsp
9. Black pepper powder- 1 tsp
10. Jeera powder- 1 tsp
11. Garam masala- 1/2 tsp
12. Asafoetida (hing)- 1/2 tsp
13. Tamarind pulp- 1 1/2 tsp
14. Aamchur powder (dry mango powder)- 1 tsp
15. Salt to taste


First heat oil in a pan and add onion, garlic, green chilly. Cook till onion turns translucent. Add ginger paste, all the powders, roasted jeera and cook for 1 minute. Now add mashed paneer, tamarind pulp and salt. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes and keep the mixture dry. Remove it from the flame and cool it in refrigerator for half a hour. 
Now make dough with flour, 1 tsp oil and water. Add water in a little amount every time.  Do not make the dough too soft. Keep the dough covered for 10 minutes with wet cloth.
Make balls of the dough and roll them into paratha shape. Spread the paneer mixture on one paratha and cover it with another one. Now stick the sides of the parathas well so that the stuffing does not come out. Heat 1 tbs of oil in a flat frying pan and fry the paratha without pressing it hard. After 3 to 4 minutes change the side and add little oil and fry it till it turns brown. Serve it hot with chutney (tomato / garlic/ pickle).
