I had planned to make chilli cheese and corn sandwich today for breakfast, but forgot to buy bread. My first thought was to make stuffed parathas. Then I got this sudden flash idea of making a paratha sandwich:)
It came out really well and my kids were very impressed. As soon as my daughter had a bite of this, she said ‘ amma, this is brilliant’.
Can’t ask for more, isn’t ? 🙂
For the Paratha
Whole wheat flour – 1+1/2 cups
Ghee – 1 tsp
Salt to taste
For the Cheese Corn stuffing
Boiled fresh corn – 1 cup
Crumbled paneer – 1/2 cup
Grated processed cheese- 1/2 cup
Cumin powder( jeera) – 1 tsp
Red chilli powder – 1/2 tsp
Dry mango powder( amchur powder) – 1/2 tsp
Garam masala powder – 1/4th tsp
Salt to taste
Ghee or butter – as much required for grilling
To make the Paratha
Add ghee and salt to taste to the flour and mix well. Add the required amount of water and knead to a smooth pliable dough.
Rest the dough for 10-15 mins.
Dust the rolling board with flour. Take a portion of the dough and roll into a circle. Then cut the sides to make it square shaped as shown in the picture ( this is just an option ).
Cook the paratha on a tawa without adding ghee. Cook till brown spots appear on both sides.
Similarly make parathas with the rest of the dough and keep it aside ( you can 8 parathas ).
To make the Stuffing
Crush the boiled corn with your hand. Add all the ingredients mentioned for the stuffing and mix well. Check for the seasonings and keep it aside.
To make the Sandwich
Place some stuffing on one paratha and spread it well. Cover it with another paratha and press it gently.
Grill on a hot tawa using ghee or butter till both sides turn crisp and golden.
Cut and serve the sandwich hot with tomato ketchup.
