To prepare Cheese Paratha, start by rolling out small portions of the dough into circles. Place a handful of grated cheese in the center of each circle and fold the edges to seal the filling inside.

Cooking Tips:


  1. Use a combination of cheese varieties such as cheddar, mozzarella, or paneer for a well-rounded flavor profile.
  2. Ensure that the cheese is evenly distributed inside the paratha to avoid clumping or uneven melting.
  3. Roll out the dough thinly to achieve a crispy texture in the paratha.
  4. Cook the parathas on medium-high heat to ensure that the cheese melts evenly without burning the outer layer.
  5. Serve the parathas immediately after cooking to enjoy them at their best, while the cheese is still warm and gooey.

  • Freshly made yogurt or raita for a cooling contrast to the warm paratha.
