Paneer Cheese Paratha

This paratha tastes as good as it looks:-)!! Pizza sauce base, evergreen grated paneer and cheese at the top!! It’s almost a pizza hidden behind the wheat roti-) This is pretty easy to make and very filling as well.. I love making stuffed parathas as it saves additional effort/time to make separate subji.. Well not to forget, it’s easy for kids to eat as well!
