Simple homemade cheese paratha

image

One of the best recent discoveries I’ve made is homemade parathas. They are surprisingly easy to make and are always a big hit with my in-house ‘customers’. It’s a nice change from the usual rice and pasta, and is the perfect accompaniment to jazz up a simple curry.

It’s a big favourite with Nathan, and I’ve found it to be one of the most effective ways to entice his somewhat fussy palate. Everything seems to taste nicer with a side of paratha.

Here is the recipe:

1 1/2 cups of plain or wholemeal flour (plus extra for dusting)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup water (approx 150 ml)
1/2 cup grated cheddar/tasty cheese (for the filling)

Mix and knead the flour, salt and water together until it forms a dough. Pinch off and roll the dough into equal sized portions about the size of your palm.

Form a little hollow in the centre of each ball. Fill with grated cheese, then pinch the edges together to seal it up.

Sprinkle some flour over and roll out the cheese-filled dough balls into flat round discs. Take care not to let the cheese filling squish out of the dough.

Heat up your pan, drizzle some oil over, then cook the parathas as you would with a pancake. Allow to cook a minute on one side until lightly flecked with golden brown spots, then flip over and cook the other side. The paratha will puff up slightly while cooking.

Serve with your favourite curry or enjoy it just as it is.
