Paneer Parathas are normally associated with mix of refined flour (maida) and whole wheat flour, but here's one healthy version made with only whole wheat flour.

Low-fat paneer has been used which provides very negligible amount of fat and also enriches these parathas with protein and calcium.

Serve them hot off the tava along with the Carrot Methi Subzi. You can also use a sautéed onion filling instead of the paneer to make onion parathas.
