Paneer and Mixed Vegetable Paratha (Flatbread) Recipe
Paneer and Mixed Vegetable Paratha
Soft and Juicy Paneer Veggie Paratha
I had some leftover vegetables in the kitchen that prompted me to make paneer vegetable paratha for the breakfast. These flat breads are easy to make. Moreover, they don't need any rich gravy to dunk in. A cup of yogurt-based raita or plain yogurt(curd) goes very well with them.
Paneer veg parathas are crispy outside and juicy inside when eaten hot. You can carry them in lunch box for later use. They are spicy and aromatic because of the spice powders used in the recipe.
Now, I will show you how to make these yummy parathas at home.
- 2 heaped cups wheat flour
- 2 cups mixed vegetables, boiled, mashed
- 4 tablespoons paneer, grated
- 2 tablespoons coriander leaves, finely chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
- 1/4 teaspoon coriander powder
- 1/4 teaspoon garam masala powder, available in Indian stores
- 2 teaspoon oil, for the dough
- ghee or oil for making the parathas
- salt to taste
- Finely chop three potatoes, a few french beans, a carrot, a portion of cauliflower, and a piece of capsicum. Add a few green peas. Cook them until soft.
- When hot, mash them. Add the mixture to a wide mixing bowl.
- Add wheat flour, salt, red chili powder, grated paneer, coriander powder, garam masala powder, chopped coriander leaves, and oil.
- Knead adding just enough water to make a firm, soft, and pliable dough.
- Divide the dough into large lemon-sized balls. Using a rolling pin, make thick discs of 6-7 inch diameter with each of the dough balls.
- Start working with one such disc at a time. Place it on the hot pan or griddle.
- Adding a few drops of ghee or oil, cook both sides until they become golden brown on both sides.
- Similarly, roast all the raw parathas.
- Serve 1 or 2 of these hot parathas with a cup of yogurt-based raita or plain yogurt(curd). Enjoy eating the spicy and appetizing flatbreads.
