PALAK PANEER PARANTHA (Cottage cheese stuffed spinach flatbread)

Palak Paneer parantha is a protein packed dish made using spinach/palak and paneer as main ingredients. The added flavours of spices just enrich the paranthas even more. 

Ingredients

For the dough

• 2 cups wheat flour

• Water, as needed

• Salt, a pinch

• 1 teaspoon cooking oil

For the stuffing

• 1 cup paneer (cottage cheese) grated or crumbled

• 2 cups spinach leaves, finely chopped

• 2 tablespoons kasuri methi (dried fenugreek leaves), crushed

• 2 teaspoons red chilli powder

• 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder

• 1 teaspoon roasted cumin powder

• 1 teaspoon chaat masala powder

• Salt, to taste

• Oil or ghee to fry the paranthas

Preparation

• To begin making the palak paneer parantha, knead a soft dough using the ingredients listed in dough making and set aside for 20 minutes.

• Meanwhile, mix all the above ingredients mentioned in stuffing section well.

• Making the mixture slightly sticky helps in rolling and spreading the spices evenly between the layers.

• Next, divide the dough into equal portions. Roll out even balls and set aside.

• Divide the paneer and spinach mix equally in the same number to that of dough balls and set it aside. Now take a dough ball and roll out into small discs. Place spice mix in the centre and bring all the sides/edges together and pinch to seal them.

• Pat in and level into round disc. Dip it in the dry flour and roll it out into slightly thick roti or parantha.

• Be gentle while rolling or else the masala might ooze out breaking the dough sheet.

• Now fry this on a hot skillet or tawa using oil/ghee. Once roasted to perfection, serve it hot.
