Stuffed parathas like Gobi Paratha or Aloo Paratha are loved by all but sometimes we need watch out the calories and then comes in the stuffed rotis. Paneer (Indian cottage cheese) Roti is healthy as it’s not shallow fried. It is basically a stuffed flatbread, stuffing prepared with paneer and a few spices. It can be enjoyed as is, with a cup of tea or a bowl of curd.

- Meanwhile heat a tawa. Place the roti on it. Flip it when you get the brown spots
- Once you get the brown spots on both the sides, remove it from the tawa with the help of the tongs and place it directly on the flame (you can even cook it on the tawa itself)
