How to make Paneer Pyaz Paratha Recipe

  1. To begin making the Paneer Pyaz Paratha Recipe, we will first make the dough.

  3. Grease your hands with oil and knead it well. Cover it and let it rest for some time.

  4. To make the stuffing for the Paneer Pyaz Paratha Recipe; in a mixing bowl, combine the grated paneer, chopped onions, finely chopped green chillies and fresh coriander.

  6. Now make even size ball out of paratha dough and roll out the ball into a small circle dusting wheat flour.

  7. Add some stuffing in the centre and gather all the corners and seal it well and press it lightly.

  8. Dust some wheat flour and roll out the sealed dough into a circle as we do for chapati dough. Don’t apply too much pressure. 

  9. Heat a tawa, on medium - high flame and put the rolled out Paneer Pyaz Paratha on it. Let it cook a little bit on one side.
