|Aloo Paneer Kulcha|
I made this dish for dinner yesterday and I gotta tell you this, It was so soft and just melts in your mouth..Since I added potatoes in the dough it was so soft,but this is entirely optional..i used paneer in the filling,but you could use tofu also..This is a thick kind of paratha so you don’t have to use a rolling pin for rolling this,just press the dough with your hands…This is perfect for lunch box for kids,since they love paneer and potatoes..Please try this and let me know what you think..
