For dough:

  • Fresh cranberries – 1/2 cup
  • Fresh mint – 1 cup (loosely packed)
  • Whole Wheat flour – 2 cups
  • Turmeric powder – 1/8 tsp
  • Fennel seeds – 1/2 tsp
  • Ajwain – a pinch
  • Oil/Ghee – 1 tsp
  • Salt – to taste

For stuffing:

  • Shredded Fresh Paneer – 1 cup
  • Kalonji – 1/8 tsp
  • Coriander powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Cumin Powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Shredded ginger – 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder – 1/8 tsp
  • Salt – to taste

Other Ingredients:

  • Oil/ Ghee – To make parathas
  • Water – as needed to make dough

Get Started:

  • Grind cranberries and mint into a fine paste and mix it with the ingredients listed under “For Dough” with enough water(as needed) to make a smooth dough.
  • Let it rest for 30 mins.
  • In another bowl, add all the ingredients listed under “For stuffing” and mix well.
  • Take a small portion of the dough and make a smooth ball of it.
  • Roll the parathas into a small disc in such a way that the corners are thin and the center is thick. (Optionally, use the best tool-“your hands” to do this job🙂 )
  • Take 1 tbsp (or more) of the stuffing, place it in the center, cover it and make a smooth ball.
  • Repeat for the rest of the mixture and let this rest for a minute.
  • Roll the paratha semi-thick by dusting some dry flour.
  • Heat an iron griddle and in medium flame, cook the paratha by smearing little oil/ ghee on both sides.
  • Cook till you see some light brown spots on both sides.
  • Serve it hot

Soft and tasty Parathas are ready!

Enjoy these parathas with any curry or dhal.

Note:

  • Fresh Paneer pacifies Vata and Pitta but aggravates Kapha.
  • Kapha people can use Barley flour or Buckwheat flour instead of Whole wheat flour.
  • Cooked mixture of Cranberries, mint and paneer makes this recipe a treat for Vata and Pitta.
