Paneer paratha | Cottage cheese flatbread

Being north -Indian if I say that Paneer paratha is something new, it will be utter lie. Paneer paratha is one of the many popular paratha varieties from punjab region of India. It is served in most restaurants as well as punjabi dhabas (road side eateries). In most of punjabi (and north Indian) households paratha is often part of one or other meal.

Paratha is an amalgamation of the words “parat” (meaning layer) and “atta” (meaning flour) which literally means layers of cooked dough.

Don’t really know when was paratha discovered, or who made first paratha, but has been staple food of Indian Sub-continent for centuries.
