My earliest memories of food have been with Parathas, All sorts, aalu, mooli, gobhi, paneer, missi roti, dal paratha, leftovers paratha… Oh so many.
Most of the lunches at school were parathas too. 🙂 Here is my fav version.
Paneer and Methi 🙂
You shall need: [serves 1]
75 gms crumbled Paneer [put the paneer on a cloth and let the excess water come off]
