Minty Cheese Paratha

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
I would love to prepare this everyday, because my younger daughter loves it. I am happy that she loves something good food... And ask me!! I am always ready for CHEESE and that too if it is with Mint!! 
A very tasty combo and perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I usually prepare this for an early dinner. A very common paratha, but if you stuff the same with some scrambled paneer, what a healthy way to start your day.
Mint or Pudina is always there in my fridge or many times I keep the mint chutney ready in the refrigerator. I will be waiting for the summer as I dry these fresh mint leaves, powder it and store it again in the fridge.
Mint gives you a very fresh feeling. Add it in the butter milk and have it in the Summer noon. See how fresh you feel.
Here is the recipe:

Wheat flour - 1 cup
Salt to taste
Oil - 1 tsp
Sugar - 1 tsp
Water to make the dough.
Mix all the ingredients except water. Keep on adding little water to make the flour into soft dough.
Keep it aside.

For Stuffing:
Fresh Mint or Pudina - 1 small bunch, cleaned, washed and finely chopped
Mozzarella Cheese - 1 cup, grated
Salt to taste
White pepper powder - 1 tsp
Mix all the ingredients and keep it aside.(Not for  long time)

Divide the dough into big lime size balls.
Take one ball, roll it to make a big puri size.
Spread the cheese and mint mixture(About big one spoon or more if you like more cheesy paratha) evenly.

Fold it to give square shape(shown in the photo)

Slowly roll the parathas into square and bigger size.

Roast the parathas with little oil on both the sides.
Serve hot with pickle or sauce(I don't recommend) or some wet chutney. I love to roll it and have it just like that to enjoy the cheese in each bite.

Sending it to PJ's Herbs and Flowers In My Platter.

I know I am late, but got confused with the last date and forgot to check. I kept the post half ready before only,  As there was a time constraint, I could not post it before 15th. I am sorry for the same PJ. Hope to maintain the time in the future.
Keep Smiling,
