A method for Cheese Paratha Recipe:

Pre-Preparation:

  • Make the Dough: Transfer the sieved wheat flour in the large mixing bowl or in a large plate. Also, sprinkle approximately ¼ of salt in the bowl of flour. Add the 1 tsp. of oil (or ghee) and pour some water as required to make the dough as one mass. Mix the dry ingredients evenly with water so that the dough becomes soft. Check the seasoning, add salt it required. Gradually, add more water if required until the dough has become smooth. Cover the bowl of dough with damp cloth and keep it aside to rest for 15-20 minutes.
  • Prepare Cheese Filling: Now, again take another bowl and meantime the dough is resting, make the stuffing. Add the grated or the shredded cheese, black pepper powder, pinch of ajwain, green coriander leaves, chopped onions and green chillies. Mix all ingredients evenly with each other.

Note: If you are using the onions, then chop them very finely or else they will come out of the cheese stuffing. The addition of salt is optional because cheese already has salt in it.

Preparation:

  • When the dough is set, break into small sized equal portions. After you have divided the whole mass of dough, make small balls from the dough.
  • Take one of the balls in your hand, roll them by placing between your palms. Give the pressure and flatten the round small.

The method of preparation remains exact as you made the cheese paratha. Firstly prepare the dough and let it rest for about an hour. Chop the veggies and mix all the dry ingredients to prepare the pizza filling. Then, knead the dough, make small balls, roll them to paratha shape, place the stuffing of pizza and then keep on a skillet for roasting.

The parathas are always served hot right from the tava. These parathas are not an ideal option for tiffin because the cheese becomes dense and the paratha becomes hard to chew once they become cold. Thus it’s better to serve these paratha’s immediately as they are cooked. But, they are the perfect snack or meal choice to offer when your kids return from school.

If you make this paratha for a party, then pair them with any spicy vegetable curry. You may serve the tasty soup in appetiser and healthy salad as an accompaniment along with yummy and cheesy paratha of cheese stuffing to give your guest the experience of a complete meal. You can personalise the topping of the paratha and also place a small bowl of salsa sauce on one side of a plate.
