paneer-stuffed-parathas

One of my friends, who loves indian food, had came over for dinner recently. I just did not know what to make her when she came. I always want to make something special, or different, so I asked her what she wanted to eat and she replied parathas. As a result, for the evening, I created a menu around that, and instead of plain parathas I decided to make stuffed ones.

There are many different vegetarian options for making the stuffing, like mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables, or just onions etc., but I decided to go with paneer. In the past I have made paneer parathas usingĀ  different recipes from various books. However this time I thought I thought – let me make my own spice mix so I just created my own concoction. Sometimes it is good to experiment with different spices and tastes that you may like, it could just work well together, I was pleasantly surprised with these parathas.

Chilli Paneer

I was first introduced to this dish after marriage when we would go to Indian restaurant/pubs with friends and family. My husband really likes this dish and can never get enough of it, so as per normal I tried to recreate the taste to what he likes. A little bit of trial and error, and tasting along the way and I have come up with this recipe and to be honest this is the first time that I have actually measured the ingredients so that I can write about it on this site. It is a great dish to serve at parties as a starter or a side dish to a main meal. It is a good show stopper as my friend put it, when I made it for her using cassava instead of paneer.
