Cooking is one of my passions. Though I am working, I make nutritious and tasty food at home. My food has less oil and no artificial color.

Paneer 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.

    Thanks Lori. Adding paneer is optional. It gives a nice taste, flavor, and binding. You can make these flat breads even without paneer. Mashed potatoes used in the recipe are sufficient to give the binding, thickness, and flavor.
