An easy but irresistible paratha that is made of everyday ingredients, the Cheese Paratha is an all-time favourite with cheese-lovers, especially kids.

A stuffing of cheese perked up with coriander and spice powders gives these whole wheat parathas a tasty and gooey centre. You must enjoy this delectable dish immediately on preparation if you want to experience the joy of biting into the freshly molten cheese, because it tends to get chewy after a while.

Accompany this paratha with a bowl of Lentil, Tomato and Spinach Soup and Pasta Salad to create an authentic mini meal that will be enjoyed by young and old alike.
