Stuffed paneer cauliflower potato paratha recipe

Stuffed paneer, cauliflower, potato paratha recipe - Most of the time, I end up in making parathas either for breakfast or lunch. I am always keen to make parathas and happily make them because these contain some vegetables which is essential for nourishment and satiation. Paneer  cauliflower paratha is a star dish, both the combination create creamy texture, rich and higher in taste if compared to other vegetable parathas.  Hence this is an ideal party dish too. Anyway, I had prepared this for our breakfast. Being a bit heavy on stomach, I compensate with a light lunch and manage the calories for the day.
