Masala Paneer Paratha

>> June 02, 2009

This i have had it in a restaurant in mumbai. Of course Paneer is favourite in my home. Everytime i couldnt taken a picture of the parathas..somehow i couldnt find time to take a picture. I kept on delaying it and finally took it. Paneer mixed with capsicum, i just love this combination for a paratha. Check out the recipe below.
