Achari Paneer Paratha (stuffed flat bread with cottage cheese)
Achari paneer paratha is new addition in my list of stuffed paratha. Generally I make Aloo paratha or mix Veg paratha for dinner. Paneer parathas and aloo parathas are staple food in panjabi homes they usually make it for breakfast.
I used spicy pickle masala in this recipe to give it a more spicy taste. This is a recipe that quick to make and very filling. Stuffed parathas are good option for kids lunch box. I served it with plain curd or green coriander chutney.
