Tofu Chilli Cheese Paratha...

We love parathas like anything....I usually try making parathas with each and everything....When we were in India I hardly used to make parathas and would completely stick to boring chapatis and salad for dinner.We discovered our love towards paratha after coming to US.I used to practice palak and methi parathas but here from my friend I learned the concept of stuffed paratha and was extremely delighted...I practice many kinds of stuffed paratha every alternate day.This time I wanted to try something different...Yes!.Jara hatke!
I remembered that Tofu was lying in my refrigerator since long and I wanted to get rid of it soon...hence decided to make stuffed parathas of Tofu with the combination of chilli and cheese...Parathas came out preety good...My husband enjoyed it as paneer stuffed parathas in his luch box and when he returned from office...I told him about parathas he was surprised and replied sahi...meaning he also loved it!Hope you all will try the same...and enjoy it as we did....Here is the recipe for all of you...
