Chilli Cheese Paratha Recipe –
1 cup grated cheese (any store-bought cheese would do)

Clarified butter (ghee) as needed
Salt to taste
Whole wheat flour
4 to 5 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
Two teaspoons cumin (jeera) powder

Step 1 – Knead dough with whole wheat flour, 1 teaspoon oil, a pinch of salt and water.
Step 3 – Divide the dough into round balls in the number you need the parathas.
Step 4 – Grate cheese into a large bowl. Add garlic, salt, green chilies, red chilli powder (optional), veggies (if any), onions and all the spices.
