I have always had green pea stuffed parathas, but this is so different and tasty. This new type of parathas stuffed with paneer and raisins tastes the best with achaar. The raisins give a sweet taste in between when it comes in your both but it does not kill the taste of the panner stuffing. Infact it enhances it
