Stuffed Paneer Paratha / Spiced Cottage Cheese Stuffed Paratha / Paneer Paratha – Lunch Box Ideas

Stuffed parathas are a life saver if you don’t have any time to cook any sidedish for roti..You can pretty much stuff it with any thing from vegetables to chicken..I have lots of stuffed paratha recipes in my blog you can check it in my recipe index or the quick menu in my side bar..

This paraths is stuffed with a spicy paneer mixture, and it is my total favorite..you could add sny spices of your choice, even a touch of chat masala will be good in this..This paratha can be put in lunch box as well..Usually stuffed parathas stays soft for a longer time than anything..

I served this with a simple tomato and onion gravy..It is so easy too make, infact i am planning to post it soon..If you are so eager to know it now..It is just sauted onions and tomatoes with some chilli powder and salt..How easy is that..So here you go to the recipe..
