Methi - Paneer Chappathi with Egg bhurji

I made these chappathis with home made paneer which i made for the first time.Followed the step by step procedure by Indira.I got such a satisfaction after making these but don't know whether i will make paneer at home again as i recently found out that 2 of our local grocery stores have fresh paneer.Yeap..freshly mad paneer in American grocery why go for such lengthy process..huh?


Methi leaves - 2 cups
Paneer - 1/2 cup (shredded)
Red chilli powder - 1/2tsp
Jeera - 1tsp
Wheat flour - 3 cups
Oil - 1tsp
Salt - as needed


In a pan heat oil and fry jeera,methi leaves and red chilli powder.Mix wheat flour,salt,paneer and fried methi mixture using warm water.Mix it well into a soft dough and keep it aside for about 30 mts.Divide the dough into equal sized balls and roll each ball into chappathis.Cook each chappathi in a hot tawa.I served this chappathi with boiled egg bhurji and onion relish.

Boiled egg bhurji recipe source here.

Tips : While using store brout paneer, just freeze the remaining paneer for withholding the freshness.

u r right mahi. why bother making paneer when u get good ones at store. little pleasures of life han?:)
paneer dish looks very tasty. i love paneer but its little heavy for my tummy. but once in a while we can handle rich food:)

Hi Mahe, How re u ? :)I enjoy ur innovations and experiments with chappathis. The moment I read the title I knew u were going to stuff something into chappathi:)Am sure that tasted soft and spicy enough.
