Tips:

  1. Fresh homemade paneer is the best for this recipe. U can use store bought ones too. Ensure there is no water in the paneer. If the stuffing is watery, it will be difficult to roll & the stuffing will spill out.
  2. U can use chopped green chillies instead of chilli powder. Garam masala can be added too.
  3. U can drizzle some oil or ghee while cooking the paneer parathas. I did not use any though..
