Paneer Paratha is a delicious paratha made by stuffing paneer, which is cooked alongwith onion, tomatoes and capsicum.  It tastes good with curds, pickle or tomato ketchup and makes for a nutritious breakfast. My kids enjoy paneer parathas even for lunch. If making for lunch, I serve paneer paratha with curds, pickle and some salad.
