Methi Paneer Parathas

Paranthas make a very important meal in Punjab. Nowadays with metropolitan culture everyone eat everything. I like the concept of paranthas as different veggies can be used and doesn’t require side dish as such. It’s a meal in itself if accompanied with pickle and washed with a glass of buttermilk. Plus, it keeps you full for longer time.

A boon for picky fussy eaters and a great lunch box idea. As it requires minimum effort and filled with nutrition. Filling too. Today, I’m sharing methi paneer parantha recipe. It has the goodness of methi and paneer and also when served with curd or pickle tastes yum.
