Paneer Paratha is a super yummy kid's favorite recipe. Freshly crumbled paneer stuffed inside the paratha served with a dollop of butter is indeed delicious.

It is a "calcium-rich" and Punjabi style recipe that can be cooked easily. I have explored many varieties of paratha and "Paneer Paratha" is one of my favorite. Apart from the given recipe, I have tried the paneer stuffing in different combinations by adding onions, by adding aloos, by adding grated carrot and by trying out different varieties of spices powders. Of all the versions, I felt this version is easy and tastes delicious. 

To cook a fantastic Paneer paratha that melts in your mouth with wonderful flavors, it is always essential to use good paneer especially, a homemade paneer is a preferred choice. If you are hesitant and thinking that paneer making process is tough then it's time to change your thoughts because making paneer at home is damn easy....try peeping into the "Home Made Paneer" recipe to see how easy it is.

Apart from Paneer Parathas, I have even tried Paneer Masala Dosa, Paneer kheer, Mixed Vegetable Paneer balls and in fact, they are most viewed recipes of Upala.

Shall we now peep into the recipe of "Paneer Paratha"

9) Heat the roti tawa and place the paratha on it.

10) Maintain low flame and look for bubbles popping up on the surface as shown in the pic.

11) Now, flip the paratha to the other side and leave it to cook till you see bubbles on the surface.

12) Pour oil on the sides and leave it for few seconds then flip it again 

13) Leave the other side also to cook and remove the cooked paneer paratha from the tawa. Repeat the same process for the rest of the doughs.

Brush some ghee or butter on top of the paneer paratha and serve immediately.

1) For all paratha recipes, initially when you add the paratha to the tawa, leave it to cook both the sides till you see nice bubbles popping up. This process allows the outside roti dough to get cooked nicely. Once you drizzle oil, you need to cook only for a few seconds on both sides and remove immediately from tawa . If you leave the paratha to stay on tawa for a longer time after adding the oil, then paratha will turn hard.

2) Apart from red chili powder, you can also add finely chopped green chilies.
