Stuffed Paneer Paratha

- 0 comments


This paratha is perfect for lazy weekend dinner because of rich heavy meal.


"Paratha" means Indian stuffed flat Bread.

Ingredients:

  For Stuffing:

  • 150 gms Grated Paneer or block of Paneer (Cottage cheese -available in most of the Indian stores)
  • Coriander leaves finely chopped
  • Small piece of Ginger (grated)
  • 2-3 flakes Garlic (grated)
  • Red Chili powder 
  • Graram masala as per taste (many grounded Indian spices- available in India Store)
  • 1/2 tsp Ajwain /Carom Seeds
  • 1/4th tsp Amchur Powder/ Dry Mango powder
  • Salt as per taste
  • Finely chopped green chilies 
  • Dhania /Coriander Powder - 1 tsp
  • Jeera/ cumin seeds powder - 1 tsp

For the dough

  • 1 and a 1/2 cup wheat flour
  • ¼ cup maida/All purpose Flour for dusting
  • 2-3 tbsp oil
  • Butter / Oil for shallow frying

Required Time: 20 mins

Method:

Mix the above three ingredients with proportionate quantity of water and form a dough.

Mix the ingredients for stuffing in a bowl and add salt as per taste. Add salt at the end because amchur powder itself has black salt in it.

Divide the dough into equal parts. Shape them like a ball and roll it with a rolling pin into a small and thick circle. (Should fit on your palm). Place it on your palm and put the stuffing with a spoon (It will look like a half bloomed flower)

Now cover it up slowly using your other hand. This process is like making aloo paratha or puran poli. Make sure the stuffing is covered on the top and the bottom of the roti and now roll it lightly without flipping the roti.

Put in on the griddle / Tawa and add oil/butter generously on the paratha. Use olive oil in  if you are on diet.

Serving: Serve with pickles, or any of your favorite chutney or with cold boondi raita or plain dahi/curd.

Palak Paratha / Spinach Indian Flat Bread

- 0 comments


You may love eating Palak Paneer, but what about the calories that you get in return. An other healthier option of having palak is, Palak Paratha... As per any diet plan, it is very important to have leafy vegetables. Leafy vegetables are typically low in calories and fat, high in protein and dietary fiber, high in iron and calcium. In this recipe, raw palak is used, so it is very high in nutrients value.



Ingredients:

  • 3-4 green chilies
  • 4-5 garlic flakes
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tbsp cumin seeds
  • 1 cup palak leaves washed and patted dry (Spinach Leaves)
  • 2 boiled potatoes - mashed
  • Fresh coriander Leaves
  • wheat flour 2 cups
  • 2 tbsp curd/ yogurt
  • 4-5 tbsp refined vegetable oil
  • 2-3 tsp ghee(clarified Butter) or butter for frying paratha’s
  • water
  • salt to taste

Time Required: 20 mins

Method:


  1. Blend together green chilies, cumin seeds, garlic flakes, spinach leaves and coriander leaves in a grinder. The iron in spinach is poorly absorbed by the body unless eaten with vitamin C. So don't forget to squeeze a lemon in the mixture. 
  2. In a plate or big bowl mix wheat flour, the blended mixture, mashed potatoes, turmeric powder, salt, water and oil.
  3. Knead into medium soft dough. Knead well for 5-6 minutes. This process can be done quickly in a food processor. 
  4. Cover with a wet cloth and let the dough sit for 20-30 minutes. Knead the dough again. 
  5. Divide the dough into balls of equal portions, now roll one ball at a time in the form of a small puri.
  6. Now cook on a tava/griddle, allow one side to cook when when you see tiny bubbles rise on the surface of the paratha. 
  7. Turn repeat for other side. Drizzle some butter or ghee on each side and flip.


Serving:
Serve hot with chilled curd and pickles.
