The right combination of paneer and processed cheese makes all the difference in this scrumptious Paneer, Cheese and Chilli Parathas. Although both are cheeses, they vary in texture, taste and properties, and when mixed together and cooked inside a paratha, they blend and fuse into a perfect texture that gives an excellent mouth-feel, enhanced by the mild tang imparted by the green chillies and tomatoes that are added to the stuffing. Literally speaking, you will really enjoy this paratha to the core!
