Paneer and Capsicum Paratha

All are familiar with the recipe of Paneer Paratha, but just to overcome the blandness of paneer, I decided to add some finely chopped capsicum. What I like about this paratha is that the stuffing needs no cooking on the stove. It can be made in a bowl, unlike my previous recipe of Aloo Paratha, where we need to cook the potato stuffing, cool it and then make the paratha.

If you have Paneer in your refrigerator, then this paratha can be a quick fix in case if you unexpected guest, a quick dinner or even an easy option for a lunch box.

Serving Size: Makes 5 Parathas
Preparation Time: 30 minutes 


For the dough: (combine all ingredients to make a smooth soft dough)
  • 2 cups wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Water as required to make the dough.
For the Paneer stuffing:
  • 300 gm grated paneer
  • 1 medium size capsicum finely chopped
  • 1 tsp grated garlic
  • 1 green chili finely chopped
  • 1 tsp red chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp amchur powder (dry mango powder)
  • 1/2 cup chopped coriander leaves
  • 3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese (optional)
  • Salt
To make paratha:
  • Divide the dough into small lemon size balls.
  • Roll out each ball to a thin and medium size roti. Place the Paneer stuffing in the center and spread it evenly.
  • Roll out a another similar size roti and place it over the paneer stuffing. Press the edges to seal.
  • Gently place the paratha on pan and roast on both sides by adding few drops of cooking oil.
