Paneer Paratha

Paneer or Cottage cheese is indispensable in most vegetarian dishes. It is rich in vitamin D and fiber and is also known to regulate blood sugar levels.

Paneer Paratha is prepared by using paneer and whole wheat flour and making flat breads. It’s a very easy and healthy recipe that can be had for breakfast or dinner.
