As I said earlier Paratha is our family favourite. Earlier I was not a great fan of paratha but nowadays I love to have stuffed paratha. Hence every time I try to experiment with a new stuffing. Few days back we went to a chaat shop and while looking at their menu my husband realized I have not tried cheese paratha at home. I
was like yes! And then I started telling the reason behind it. Yes, you guessed it right I was worried about the extra calories. He was planning to order cheese paratha and I stopped him and said I will prepare it my kitchen. Because I knew I will not be able to control myself and end up eating the cheese paratha at chaat
shop, so why not to try it at home :P..We ordered some chaats and kept the cheese paratha to be prepared for dinner.
As soon as I reached home started doing the preparation. He said 'shall I help you"' I said 'no' because it really does not require lot of preparation. I have used mozzarella cheese and sprinkled some oregano into the stuffing as cheese and oregano go hand in hand. You can avoid oregano and add some carom seeds instead. You can also use the combination of mozzarella and cheddar cheese! When I was frying the parathas cheese was bursting and oozing out. It was an yummy treat, once in a while you can try this keeping away the thought of calorie for the particular day. You can pack cheese paratha for you kids lunch box as they require protein and fat during their growing years. Here is the recipe of cheese paratha.
