Ingredients

For The Parathas
2 cups plain flour (maida)
1 cup milk
1 tbsp melted ghee
salt to taste

To Be Mixed Into A Stuffing
2 cups grated paneer (cottage cheese)
1 cup finely chopped coriander (dhania)
1/2 cup finely chopped mint leaves (phudina)
1/4 cup finely chopped onions
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp green chilli paste
salt to taste

Other Ingredients
plain flour (maida) for rolling
melted butter for cooking
Method
  1. Divide the stuffing into 8 equal portions and keep aside.
  2. Combine plain flour, ghee, milk and salt in a deep bowl and knead into a soft dough without using any water.
  3. Divide the dough into 8 equal portions and roll each portion into a 200 mm. (8?) diameter circle using a little plain flour for rolling.
  4. Place a portion of the mixture in the centre and fold 2 opposite corners of the roti over the filling, overlapping them slightly. Now fold the remaining 2 sides to seal the stuffing well.
  5. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and cook the paratha, using a little butter, till they are golden brown in colour from both the sides.
  6. Repeat with the remaining roti and stuffing to make 7 more parathas.
  7. Serve immediately.
