    Hi Monte,
    This is really cool. I’m going to try making this two ways. (1) use my dough attachment on my mixer because my fingers don’t work as well as they used to to make the parathas. (2) I will try using tortillas and work my way like I making quasidillas.
    Thanks for the great idea to use cabbage.


    • Hi Philo, definitely, using the dough attachment is more practical, although I’m posting the traditional method. Well.. this is the Indian version of quesadilla…. enjoy! Let me know how they trun out. Paneer may be substitued for any low fat cheese. Thank you.
