Punjabi Paneer Aloo Paratha

Vegetarian

This aloo paneer paratha recipe is an interesting stuffed paratha recipe where the goodness of paneer is added to the popular aloo paratha recipe. This is a kind of ‘spinoff’ flatbread recipe where a paratha is stuffed with spicy paneer and potato filling and then roasted on a hot tawa or griddle.

Often when I am in the mood for some aloo paratha but feel guilty of having too much potato in a meal, I replace some of it in the spicy filling with some grated paneer. Paneer cheese bulks up the paratha by adding protein and reducing the carbohydrate content.

Here in this blog post, I have shared step-by-step recipe instructions for an easy stuffed paratha recipe using paneer and aloo. In addition to this, you will also find a list of other easy-to-make paratha recipes. Since we are on the topic of paneer, I have also included some of the paneer recipes from my blog.

Pro Tips & Tricks for perfect Paneer Aloo Paratha recipe

  • Dough for Paratha – The dough for stuffed paratha has to be semi-stiff so that when you put in the paratha stuffing, it can be easily rolled without cracking or breaking off at the edges. 
  • For perfectly crispy tawa-stuffed paratha, rub some oil or ghee into the flour before adding water to knead the dough. To enhance the flavor, add some salt and ajwain (carrom seeds) as well.
  • Perfect Paratha Stuffing – Make sure that there is a minimum amount of moisture in the paratha stuffing otherwise it will moisten the dough while rolling the parathas and cause the edges to break. 
  • Cooking the Paratha – The Paratha needs to be cooked on gentle heat on both sides so that it cooks properly and becomes crispy without burning

Serving suggestions for Aloo Paneer Paratha

Homemade aloo paratha goes best with a bowl of spiced yogurt or thick curdspicy green chutney, and some pickles. A trendy way of serving paratha is with a big dollop of unsalted white butter! That loads it up with a ton of flavour, that comes along with a serious helping of calories.

Some people like to have their stuffed paratha with some gravy-based side dish like chole or chana masala to make it into a complete meal.
