Stuffed Paneer Paratha

Paneer paratha is a crisp, healthy and yummy Indian flatbread prepared with a stuffing of Indian cottage cheese and spices. It is very easy to make and quite filling. Although it is often served as a breakfast dish, it can also be eaten as a complete meal for lunch.

I like to serve it with dahi, or Indian yoghurt, as well as stuffed red chilli pickle.

3 paneer parathas


  • 100 grams paneer (Indian cottage cheese), mashed by hand
  • 275-300 grams whole wheat flour dough
  • Oil, as needed, for frying the paratha
  • Flour, as needed, for dusting
  • 1 medium onion, chopped small
  • 2 tbsp hara dhania (cilantro), chopped
  • 1 tsp ginger paste
  • 1 green chilli, chopped
  • 8-10 pudina (mint leaves), chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garam masala
  • 1/2 tsp amchur (mango powder)
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder, coarsely ground
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli flakes


  1. If you do not already have whole wheat flour dough ready, prepare that first. Set it aside and let it rest for 1 hour.
  2. In a mixing bowl add the paneer, chopped onion, chopped hara dhania, ginger paste, green chilli and mint leaves.
  3. Add the salt, garam masala, amchur, turmeric powder, coriander powder and red chilli flakes. Mix well and crush any large paneer pieces by hand.
  4. Divide the dough into 3 equal portions. Take one portion and roll it into a ball. Dust it with flour and roll it out into a roti about 5 inches round.
  5. Place 1/3 of the stuffing onto the roti. Lift and fold the edges simultaneously and gather them on the top. Press the folds to seal, dust with flour and roll it out into a slightly thick paratha.
  6. Place a tawa to heat up on low-medium heat. When hot, brush a little oil on the tawa and place the paratha on it. Cook for 15-20 seconds; then flip it over.
  7. Cook the other side for 15-20 seconds; then flip it once more. Spread a little oil on the paratha, flip it again and spread a little oil on this side, too.
  8. Roast the paratha, flipping it repeatedly, until it is golden and crisp on both sides.
  9. Transfer the paratha to a plate and cook the remaining parathas similarly.
  10. Serve the parathas with dahi (yoghurt) sprinkled with roasted cumin seed powder and red chilli powder, as well as stuffed red chilli pickle.
