Paneer chappathi

As most of you might know about Nidhi of Cooking made easy won the Emeril Scratch contest and made us all proud.Paneer was her winning recipe.So i decided to make this paneer chappathi as of way of congratulating her.Congrats Nidhi...

Paneer chappathi


Paneer - 1/4 lb (cut into small pieces)
Atta - 2 and 1/2 cups
Salt - as needed
Butter - 2tbsp (softned)
Jeera - 2tsp


In a food processor, put atta,paneer,salt,jeera,butter and mix it into a soft dough using water.Be careful while adding water, not too much.If you don't have a food processor, shred paneer fine using a shredder and mix everything with hand as you do for chappathi dough.Thanks to Saffron of Saffron hut for this method of using food processor for mixing paneer well with the dough.This makes mixing very easy.Let the dough rest for 30-40 mts.Dough will be very soft because of paneer and butter.Make about 20 balls out of the dough and roll into chappathis.In a hot tawa, cook each chappathi till golden brown on both sides.There is no need to add any oil while cooking it.There you have it nice and soft paneer chappathis.I served it with Aloo sabji.
