About Chilli Cheese Paratha

Chilli Cheese Paratha is an unleavened whole wheat flatbread that is stuffed with grated cheese, chillies along with herbs & spices.

These parathas make a wholesome breakfast along with ketchup or pickle.

The recipe that I am sharing today includes processed cheese but you can easily tweak it with mozzarella cheese or cheddar.

These parathas are easy to make and don’t take much of a time to prepare.

Cheese paratha in general is one of the most popular fusion dishes in India that is served for breakfast or as an evening snack.

These parathas are popular amongst kids and served along with tomato ketchup.

Made with whole wheat flour and flavourful cheese stuffing, this paratha is very easy to make and tastes delicious.

After aloo paratha, this is our family’s favourite recipe that we often include in our breakfast.

These are best served hot and pairs best with a cup of tea or coffee.

I like to use whole wheat flour for making these parathas but you can also make it using all-purpose flour (maida) or a combination of whole wheat and maida to make it more crispy.

These cheesy and yummy paratha can also be had as an evening snack especially for kids when they return home after school or play.

ingredients

Cheese – To make this chilli cheese paratha I have used processed cheese. You may also use mozzarella, or cheddar instead. We will need to grate the cheese for the stuffing.

Whole Wheat Flour –We will require whole wheat flour for making the covering of this paratha. If you like to have a crispy paratha then use half wheat flour and half all-purpose flour (maida).

Ginger & Green Chillies – For this chilli cheese paratha we will need 2-3 green chillies along with half an inch of ginger. Make a paste using morat-pestel. This chilli-ginger paste adds a nice punch of flavour to this paratha. While making for children, adjust green chillies accordingly or skip it completely.

Spices & Herbs – We will be using mixed Italian herbs like oregano, thyme and rosemary. To add a little heat, I like to add some chilli flakes which give a nice taste to this paratha.

Seasoning – We will use salt only in making the wheat dough. Do not add salt to cheese stuffing.

Fats – I have used ghee here but you can use ghee oil or butter.

Water – We will need water to make the wheat dough.
