Paneer Paratha-- Cottage Cheese Stuffed Flat bread-- Kids School Lunch

Hello Sweeties!! The first post for the year 2015 is a hot favorite with my kids. My kids love paneer and anything with paneer makes the food interesting. 

Lately they have been asking for school lunch that is easy to eat and do not take much time to eat. Parathas and sandwiches are a staple and life saver for moms in my shoes. The kids are enjoying such lunches and seeing empty boxes are a relief for me.

For the stuffing;
1 cup paneer mashed
1 tspn crushed garlic
1 tspn red Chili/Cayenne powder 
1 tspn Cilantro chopped
1 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp chat masala
1tspn Garam masala
Salt to taste

Mix the paneer, garlic, cilantro, garam masala, red chili/cayenne powder, chat masala, turmeric and salt,  to make it into a soft pliable dough. Keep aside.

 For cover;
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tspn salt
1 tbspn oil
water as needed to knead into a soft dough

In a bowl, mix the oil and salt and water and knead into a soft pliable dough.

Making the parathas,
1. Make equal size balls of the cover and stuffing
2. Roll a small round of the cover and put the stuffing in it and fold from all sides and roll that in some flour, dust the rolling surface with some flour and
3. Roll into a small round roti or paratha.
Heat a pan/skillet/tawa and roast it on both sides applying little oil or ghee on it . When it gets cooked, serve with yogurt/pickle/ketchup or sour cream., salad or just enjoy these with hot chai.
