Ingredients

For the dough

  1. Flour 1kg
  2. spinach leaf 500gm
  3. Coriander leaf 30gm
  4. Carom seed/Ajwain in Hindi/Jwano in Nepali 10 gm
  5. Salt to taste
  6. Chat masala 10 gm

For mixture

  1. Paneer (cottage cheese)400gm
  2. Onion 200gm
  3. Garlic 100gm
  4. Ginger 100gm
  5. Green chilly 4 piece
  6. Cumin seed 10gm
  7. Coriander powder 10gm
  8. Salt to taste
  9. Coriander leaf 100gm

Steps

Wash spinach 2 to 3 times in cold water.
Boil 3 cups of water and add spinach leaves and keep it for 2 minute.
Drain water from spinach.
Add blanched spinach to a blender, add coriander leaf which will make smooth puree.
Mix wheat flour, some salt, and carom seeds to make a stiff dough. Now add the spinach puree.
Make a dough out of these, following the standard dough making technique -kneading and kneading. 🙂
Preparation for the filling mixture
Combine grated paneer in a medium size bowl.
Heat a shallow pan. Add Olive oil. Add cumin seed, add onion, ginger, garlic paste, green chilly. Let them be light brown and add paneer and coriander leaf. Mix well.
Final Steps
After the dough has been set aside for 20 minutes, divide it into 9 equal parts and give each a round ball shape. Press each ball a little in the middle and fill the paneer mixture inside the dough.
Take each ball separately and convert it into thick Pattie by pressing between your palms or by rolling. Lightly coat its entire surface with dry flour.
Place it on a heated tava griddle or a shallow frying pan and cook it as you would cook plain paratha. Adding 1/2 teaspoon butter on each side as you flip the paratha will make it even more delicious. Cook the paratha until light golden brown spots appear on both sides.

Coat with butter on both sides. See the golden brown spot-the paratha is cooked!
