An utterly cheesy paratha with the sprightly flavour and appetizing aroma of methi, this paratha is a sure-shot winner with young and old alike!
What makes it so, is the perfect balance of cheese and spices in the stuffing. Apart from regular ingredients like ginger and green chillies, the stuffing is also flavoured with ingredients like dry mango powder and chaat masala, which gives it a really zesty flavour.
You will love the cheesy mouth-feel and energetic flavour of the Methi Cheese Paratha. But, like in the case of most dishes with cheese, make sure you serve this paratha immediately after preparation before the cheese gets chewy.
