paneer parathas

This is something I made for my little one's lunch box. She likes to take it twice a week.  Pediatrician wanted my girls to take more dairy.  They hate milk and paneer.  They like to take yogurt. But that was not enough. So i thought of adding panneer in their diet.  Below given quantity is for two parathas

  1. Wheat dough - 2 medium ball sized
  2. Shredded panneer - 4 tbsp
  3. Salt - a pinch
  4. Ajwain -  2 pinches
First take the shredded paneer, ajwain and salt and mix it together and make it two small balls.  Now take the chapathi dough, flatten it into a small circle. Now keep the paneer ball in it and cover it just like kozhakkatai. Again spread the dough into circles. I prefer to make smaller ones. Heat a tawa and cook the parathas in medium flame.  Flip it when one side is half cooked. Spread a teaspoon of ghee (optional) on top of it and enjoy it with a good bhaji.  My girlie likes to have it with a dallop of butter.
