Cheese and Onion stuffed Paratha

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
This is second time happened with me in this week. I started making something and ended up with other.
Day before yesterday, I kneaded the atta to make Phulkas. Mom was cutting onions for making Gram flour omelet. And suddenly I remembered I had to switch off the fridge, as next day the technician was about to come for  a minor repair. I had a full big cheese ball inside the freezer. That is why I changed my plan from making phulkas and omelet to Onion and Cheese Paratha. It is a common recipe, but I love to have it any time as it is healthy and keeps  you full for longer time.
Coming to the recipe,
Wheat flour - 1 cup
Oil - 1 tbsp
Curds - 1 tsp
Sugar - 1/2 tsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Water to knead the dough.

Mix all the ingredients in a vessel or plate except water. Keep on adding water to make it in to soft dough. Keep it aside for 10 to 15 minutes.
For stuffing:

For masala:
Onion - 1 big, chopped finely
Oil - 1/2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Red chilly powder - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp

Heat oil in kadai, add onion and fry till light brown. Add salt, red chilly powder and Coriander powder. Fry for another half a minute.

Cheese(Mozzarella) - 1/2 cup, grated
Oil to roast paratha(1/2 tsp for each paratha)
  1. Divide the dough into small equal parts.
  2. Take two balls for one paratha. Roll these into small chapati size.(Can see in the photo below)
  3. Keep one chapati on a rolling board.
  4. Take one tbsp of onion masala and spread it on the chapati
  6. Spread one tbsp or more(if you love cheese!) grated cheese on it.
  7. Cover it with one more ready chapati. Press on the sides.
  8. Roll into little bigger paratha so that the stuffed masala spreads equally.
  9. Heat tawa and fry the paratha on both the sides with little oil.

Serve with pickle or just roll it and give it to kids. 

My both the kids enjoyed the rolls a lot.

Keep Smiling,

Going to send these to PJ's event

Third One is Microwave Tandoori Paneer I love paneer and this quick Tandoori Paneer is very tasty. 
I have prepared it many times and sometimes I skipped red chilly powder. The photo below is without red chilly powder.

The fourth one is Soya Chunks Pakodas :

A Bengali sweet : you name it!

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
Some times, you will fail when you are overconfident. Last night, this was what happened with me.
After preparing Rasagulla, Jamoon and Rasmalai many times, I was  very confident that Sandesh will come out perfect. But Man proposes with his ego,  and  God disposes!! 
I started making Sandesh and ended with something else. You have to name it because I do not know what to name it.
You see the photo and name it.

As usual I browsed many sites and blogs. All the recipes were same. 
Paneer - 1 cup(prepared with half litre of milk, the quantity will be less but good if you are trying for first time)
Fine sugar - 1/2 cup
Rose essence - 1 drop
Saffron strands - 2 to3 (soaked in 1 tbsp of warm milk)

Take paneer and knead it to remove lumps. 
Add sugar and mix gently till both are blended nicely.
Transfer it into thick bottomed kadai and cook on low flame till it becomes soft. 
Add rose essence and  saffron milk. Mix well.
Remove from heat and give desired shape.
This is what the recipes say.
But may be I over cooked the paneer mix, It came out very dry.
So again I added little milk and cooked for some more time. But in vain.
It came out more dry!!
I transferred it into a plate and gave it the burfi shape.
Now all of you give the name to this sweet. It almost tasted like kalakand but it was too dry! 
I am sending this to 
PJ's event
with a doubt will she accept it???
