Carrot-paneer stuffed roti (parantha)

Carrot works great with paneer and onions. I accidentally stumbled on this combination and boy am I glad to have found it! The stuffing requires grated carrots, crumbled paneer with finely chopped onions and spices. You can be creative with the stuffing and it tastes great with raita/pickle.

What goes in?

For the stuffing-

Grated carrots- 1 cup
Finely chopped onions- 1/2 cup
Crumbled paneer- 1/2 cup
Dry roasted cumin seeds (1 tsp)- gently crushed
Black pepper- crushed 1/2 tsp
Salt according to taste
1/2 tsp garam masala (optional)

For the base-

1 1/2 cup wheat flour
water for kneading
1 tsp oil
1/2 tsp salt


  • Knead the flour with salt and water to a smooth dough (add oil towards the end). Set it aside.
  • In a separate bowl, mix grated carrot, paneer, onion, and the rest of the spices mentioned above. 
  • Toss the filling well with oil and ensure it is a dry mixture and not soggy.  Some people tend to saute carrots and onion before mixing with spices for filling. But I tend to use it raw (the carrot flavor comes out really well, if used raw).
  • Once the filling is done, rest is easy!
  • Take a small ball of dough and flatten it with a rolling pin.
  • Add around 1 tbsp of filling in middle and fold it to a pouch (with filling in middle).
  • Flatten this pouch on a lightly floured surface to a medium sized round shape.
  • Cook the roti (both sides) on a frying pan with sufficient oil.
  • Serve hot with mango chutney/pickle.

cottage cheese and onion stuffed roti!

Gloomy sunday afternoon always demands spicy food! Cottage cheese, onions, spices stuffed in a flat bread and fried to golden brown- top this with spicy pickle and yoghurt on the side. Now that's what I call a belly filling dish :)

Ingredients (for stuffing)

1 cup grated cottage cheese
1 onion chopped finely
coriander leaves chopped finely
2 green chillies (chopped)
salt (according to taste)
garam masala (1/2 tsp)
coriander powder (1/4 tsp)
Kasoori methi leaves (1 tsp)- fenugreek leaves
2 garlic cloves (chopped finely)

Ingredients (for the base)

Wheat flour (11/2 cup)


Knead the flour to a smooth dough with the help of water and set it aside. In a bowl mix all the stuffing ingredients with a liberal dose of oil. Take a ball of dough and flatten it to a small circle. Add the filling in the middle and fold the sides to make it into a small pouch. Flatten this small pouch to a medium sized circle. Fry this in a pan to golden brown on both sides. Serve with yoghurt and pickle. Enjoy!
