If it’s Paratha then Punjab will be either prefixed or suffixed just like Idli and Dosa from South India . Paratha are one of the healthiest and easiest breakfast recipe. As its globally said, eat a wholesome heavy breakfast , for me it’s Paratha. Because all your nutrition requirements are present in Paratha. Protein , Fiber , Fat , Vitamins and Minerals ,everything will be present in a serving of Paratha. So I consider it to be the best.

Apart from health quotient , it’s easy to make , tasty and the best for lunch box  . Everyday before going to bed , first thought of mine is What for Breakfast and Lunch Box ,tomorrow??? At times, deciding on these 2 menu is the most difficult job for me. Because I should make justice for all the 3 at home without compromising on health and taste.Especially my fussy eater Sahishnu  , who is so selective and eats only if its advertised. So these days , I open my own blog Breakfast Category and ask him what he wants to eat …., he picks one or two and my work will be half done.

Well , coming back to Paneer Paratha ,there are 2 different ways of doing paneer Paratha . One method is similar to Aloo Paratha , a spicy paneer mixture is sauteed along with onions ,green chillies ginger garlic paste  is stuffed inside, rolled and cooked. Other method is what I have shared here. A simple recipe where crumbled paneer is mixed with spices ,rolled and cooked.
