aloo cheese paratha(Potato Cheese Stuffed Flat Bread)

Cheese and Paratha is a superb combination. These cheese inside the bread gives a good moisture and texture to the bread. The end product is  a tasty mouth watering paratha.
India is famous for several varities of flat bread. Since the popularity of cheese has grown up so much , we definitely needed to blend the cheese in Indian food in some or the other ways. Hence we have this cheese paratha.
Rakshabandhan is also coming up. Its the celebration of brotherhood where the sisters on full moon day in the month of Shravan (Buddh Purnima) ties a holy thread on the wrist of her brother which signifies the well being and prosperity of the brother. In return the brother takes a vow to protect his sister throughout his life.
I have already sent my Rakhi threads to my brother. Those who haven't may soon send their Rakhi love to their brothers.
