Author Mukta Tikekar


  • 1 cheese cube grated
  • 1-2 tsp chopped coriander
  • 1-2 tsp butter
  • 1/4 th tsp jeera powder
  • 1 ball-shaped portion of kneaded wheat dough roti ka atta


  • Grate a cheese cube and set some aside for sprinkling on top of the paratha.
  • Add chopped coriander and jeera powder, and mix well. (I don't add salt in the stuffing as the processed cheese and butter already contain enough salt.)
  • Make a ball-shaped portion of the mixture to be used as stuffing for the paratha.
  • Take ball-shaped dough and roll out into a small circle (about 5” in diameter).
  • Place the stuffing in the middle of the rolled out dough.
  • Bring together the sides of the dough in the center like a potli and seal tightly. This again will be ball-shaped. Flatten it slightly so you can roll out to make parathas.
  • Roll out the ball-shaped dough stuffed with cheese and coriander to make a thickish paratha.
  • Heat a non-stick tava and place the paratha on it.
  • Apply butter on both sides of the paratha and cook it till light brown spots appear on each side. (Keep the flame low after applying butter otherwise the butter will get burnt.)
  • Transfer the paratha onto a serving plate and then sprinkle the remaining grated cheese on top of it.
  • Serve hot with tomato ketchup or pudina chutney.


  • You can give this coriander cheese paratha in your kid's lunch box or tiffin. Use a pizza cutter and cut the paratha in bite-sized pieces, pack in mint chutney or tomato ketchup as an accompaniment.


Ingredient measure is for one large paratha.
