Cheese Paratha

Today's recipe  is a simple and  delicious cheesy paratha. I have used store bought mexican blend grated cheese, you can go ahead and use any kind of cheese you like. I have added very little chili flakes and kasuri methi for the extra flavor. This recipe goes to day 3 of Blogging Marathon 108 under the theme A-Z series.

Cheese paratha is a fun recipe and kids or adults would love it alike. I love the Fiesta blend cheese for this recipe as it melts just the right way.

I should bait with this cheese idea and tempt my daughter to try a paratha at least once in her life.
