PANEER STUFFED PARATHA
Parathas are very comfort all in one meal. A little time consuming is the stuffing part but a fulfilling meal on its own, with a dollop of butter on top ……heavenly!! Though health conscious I wanted to have butter on top of parathas, otherwise it loses its charm. The horizon for stuffing is so wide & infinite, it’s up to your imagination.I’ve tried many varieties of stuffed parathas which will be revealed soon.
The most favourite is Paneer stuffed parathas ….next to aloo parathas.
