How to make Stuffed Tandoori Parathe

  1. In a big mixing bowl, seive the flour and add salt. Now add cream and mix it well. Now add water, little by little and make a soft dough by kneading well. Cover the dough and keep aside for atleast 15 minutes.
  2. Potato Stuffing: Mix all the ingredients and the stuffing is ready.
  3. Paneer Stuffing: Mix everything gently. And we are done
  4. Take a lemon sized ball and roll it with the help of a rolling pin to half of the regular size of a chapati. Place a handful of stuffing in the centre.
  5. Now lift up the sides slowly and pack into a ball. Make sure the stuffing is covered completely. Now roll it again.
  6. Heat the gas tandoor on high flame for atleast 5 minutes till it's really hot. Take little water in your hand and spread it on 1 side of the paratha. Now lift the paratha and put it on the inner side of the lid (dome) keeping the wet surface in contact with the lid. Press it well. Now put the lid back on the tandoor. Let it bake for 5-10minutes.
  7. The parathas shall themselves drop to the wire rack within the tandoor, if not, gently remove them from them lid and put them on the wire rack.
  8. Keep a check on the parathas in every few minutes. Keep tossing them as and when required and adjusting the flame from medium to high, as required. This should take about 15-20 minutes.
  9. Remove the parathas once well-cooked and crispy. Serve hot with butter.

My Tip:

Fresh cream can also be replaced by equal amount of ghee. Dough can also be prepared a night before to get a little sour taste.
