These cheese flatbreads Make for a wholesome breakfast or brunch. There are many many varieties of paratha made and this is one such tasty paratha which the kids are going to love.

I make cheese paratha mostly with leftover dough for a quick breakfast. The cheese stuffing mixture can be spiced as per your needs. I make a minimally spiced cheese stuffing which is not spicy or hot. So you can change the spice factor in the cheese stuffing accordingly.

These cheese paratha are best served hot. so not advisable for them to be a tiffin box snack. The cheese does become dense and the parathas become chewy once they turn cold. So these paratha have to be served hot.

Accompany these hot cheese paratha With curd/yogurt or mango pickle or tomato ketchup.

How to make cheese paratha

Kneading dough

1. In a large mixing bowl or plate/tray take 1 cup whole wheat flour, ¼ tsp salt, 1 tsp oil or ghee (clarified butter). Add some water.

2. Mix everything and begin to knead into a smooth and soft dough. Add more water if required while kneading. cover and keep the dough aside for 20 to 30 minutes.

3. When the dough is resting, prepare the cheese stuffing. In a bowl or plate, take all the stuffing ingredients – ½ cup tightly packed grated cheese, ¼ cup finely chopped onions, 1 or 2 green chilies (skip for kids), finely chopped and ¼ to ½ tsp crushed black pepper.

Here I added orange cheddar cheese. You can use regular plain cheese or cheddar cheese. I add onions as we prefer them in these parathas. But you can easily skip the onions and increase the quantity of cheese. You can also add garlic or ginger if you want.

4. Mix everything very well. No need to add salt as cheese already has a lot of salt.
