– In a large bowl, add the flour, 1 tsp salt, carom seeds, chilli powder, and turmeric powder. Mix well.

– Then, crumble the paneer into the bowl and add the cheddar cheese. Mix well.

– Add some flour to a bowl. Tear off a lime-size portion from the dough and roll it into a ball.

– Fill the circle with the cheese mix and then pinch the sides together firmly.

– Roll the dough in some flour again and then flatten again with a rolling pin.

– Heat your pan on medium heat.

– Add the paratha to the pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Then, lightly spread some oil onto both sides and cook for 1 minute on each side.

– Repeat with the rest of the dough.
