Directions

  1. In a large bowl add the flours, salt and 1 tbsp of oil. Mix and add the water a little at a time until you have a soft dough (you might not need all of the water) Knead the dough for a few minutes until it becomes smooth and soft. Cover and let it rest for 15 minutes.
  2. In a seperate bowl mix the paneer, yogurt and seasonings until smooth.
  3. Divide the dough into 6 equal portions and roll each into a 3 inch circle. Put 1/6 of the filling mixture into the center of each circe of dough and gather the edges of the dough up to the center to seal the filling inside a ball.
  4. Allow the balls of dough to set for 3-4 minutes and then press the ball of dough and dust it with whole wheat flour and lightly roll it into a 6 inch circle. Dust with more flour if it becomes sticky when you are rolling it.
  5. Heat a skillet on medium heat and put the parantha in the hot skillet. When it starts to puff after about 30 seconds, turn it over and spread with about a teaspoon of oil. Flip it again and lightly press with a spatula to make sure it is evenly browned on both sides.
  6. Repeat with each ball of dough and serve hot. Great with chutney!

What a fun recipe! It was a little time involved, but the results were yummy. A few things I'd recommend... I would add some more seasoning to the filling next time, maybe some curry spices. Also, I don't think I rolled the bread out thin enough because it took quite awhile to cook through in the skillet. It would be delicious probably with any filling.
