Paneer/Cottage stuffed Parathas/Flatbreads

I love parathas making them and eating them!I love to stuff them and roll them out (a few of my friends are dreading the stuffing part) but i keep assuring them its nothing.My kids loved this simple yet nutritious paratha.

If you're scared of stuffing parathas this has to be the fail proof paratha you need to try it with home made paneer.I'll make a simple post followed by this with a collage to show how to make paneer.Why because I didn't do anything this time because packets of milk went bad for me but once when I did try to make paneer i didn't get the desired results.I prepared the filling for this the same way I do for aloo parathas.I haven't posted those I love aloo parathas the previous time I clicked pictures I wasn't happy with the clicks so they didn't make it to the blog.
