Paneer Methi Roti is an interesting variation of the common paneer parathas, this one is sure to win over several hearts with its mild flavour. The addition of methi increases the iron content and vitamin A value substantially. Serve it with a bowl of low-fat curds, to make a complete meal. I’ve used wholesome whole wheat flour instead of maida, which abounds in essential vitamins and minerals

Soft gooey and flavor-filled these parathas are simply tempting... i usually make palak parathas but never thought that by adding paneer to it.. the complete taste and texture of this recipe would be so different... Nice one.
