For the Second day of Say Cheese under BM#49, I have this stuffed cheese paratha. While I have previously made cheese paratha, mixing in the dough and making a masala version, this time I used cheese slice and added spiced potato wedges to make it more interesting. I was prepared to make some elaborate cheese based dishes. However as expected, time never gives us enough time, so ended up making simpler ones again.
Idea for today’s dish came when I was reading Priya
‘s cheese paratha. I wanted to make it little more filling, so made spiced potato wedges and stuffed it along with cheese slices.
One big advantage with these simpler dishes are that you can always more varieties in a meal than you otherwise would. Anyway this was quickly prepared for Konda’s breakfast and she loved it.
Stuffed Cheese Paratha with Spicy Potato Wedges
For the Paratha
Wheat flour – 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Ghee – 1 tsp
Water to knead
For the Potato Wedges
Potato, chopped as fingers – 1 cup
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Red chili powder to taste
How to make the Paratha
Knead the flour as you would for regular paratha. Keep it aside.
Peel the potato and cut into fingers. Heat a non stick pan and grease with oil. Then add the potato wedges and season with salt and pepper.
Cook till soft.
Then dust the balls, roll out as discs. Place the cheese slice in center, top it with potato wedges and enclose the cheese slice, making sure there are no holes.
Heat a tawa, and cook the paratha on both sides.
Serve with ketchup
