Paneer with Mixed Veggie Paratha / Cottage Cheese Veggie stuffed Flat Bread

Paratha is our all time favorite and we make different types of paratha. One of them is paneer mixed veggie paratha which is my favorite. I add grated paneer to make mixed veggie paneer paratha. Adding Panner always enhance the food in my kitchen. Traditionally parathas are served with some ghee or butter, simple raita and spicy Indian pickle.

All purpose flour– 1 cup
Wheat flour – 2 cups
Butter – 2 tbs
Water – 1 ½ cup
For Filling
Paneer – 400g grated
Cabbage – 1 cup
Tomatoes – 21/2 chopped finely
Cashews – 10
Mixed veggies – 1cup ( I used frozen )
Coriander powder – 1 ½ tsp
Cumin powder – 1 tsp
Amchur powder – a pinch
Madras Curry powder- ½ tsp
Garam masala powder – ¼ tsp
Chilli powder – 1 tsp
Turmeric powder-1/4 tsp
Cilantro – 1 tbs finely chopped
Cumin seeds -1/4 tsp
Fennel seeds- ¼ tsp
Salt to taste

Mix all the flour in a bowl, add salt, butter and water. Mix it until becomes a pliable dough. Add more flour if it’s sticky or little oil if it’s too dry. Set it aside for 15 mins.
Grate the panner. In a hot wok, add oil, cumin seeds, fennel seeds, cashews and cabbage. Fry it for 3 mins. Now add tomatoes, all the powdered ingredients and fry them for till the tomato becomes mushy. Now add the mixed veggies, cilantro and salt. Leave this for 5 mins. Finally add the grated paneer and mix it for few mins. Turn off the fire.
Take a small amount of the dough and roll it in your hands to make a ball shape. Take some flour for dusting. Now, dust this ball shape dough with little flour and press it with your palms to flatten it a bit. Use a rolling pin to flatten it a bit more. Take a small amount of the filling and make a small ball shape. Place this filling in the centre of the dough. Now cover the filling with the dough by bringing the ends upwards enclosing the filling all sides. Pinch the dough together on the top to cover the filling completely. Make sure the filling is completely covered. Use a rolling pin to flatten the filled dough /bread. In a hot pan /tawa, place the paratha and apply some little oil on all sides and on top. After 2 mins flip to another and repeat the process the rest of the parathas.

Note: The filling should be dry.
