Hand rolled paneer paratha.

I make decent parathas, but rolling the parathas with hands instead of using the rolling pin has always been a dream for me.


For the dough:

2 cups wheat flour 

Water as required (do not make the dough too hard, will means use a little extra water)

1/2 TSP salt

2 TSP oil.

Mix all the above ingredients, make a ball, cover with cloth and leave aside.

For the filling:

200 gms paneer

2 medium boiled potatoes

Salt and black salt to taste

1/2 TSP jeera powder

1tsp chilli powder

1/2 amchur or dry mango powder

1/4tsp garam masala powder

Few corriander leave finely chopped.

Mash up the above ingredients and make balls and leave aside.


Take a portion of the dough roll it to Puri size sprinkle some oil or ghee, dust some flour and keep one ball of the paneer masala on it. Cover the masala ball with the dough and start spreading it with your fingers gently ensuring that the paratha and the masala inside is spreading evenly.

Take a pan and shallow fry the parathas. Drizzle ghee or oil on both sides.

Yummy parathas ready to be served with curd and pickle (optional)
