Hi everyone ! Today’s recipe is ‘Paneer Baida Roti’. It is basically a crisp parcel stuffed with paneer (cottage cheese) and egg. Baida means egg. Most common form of this dish is prepared with boiled boneless chicken, here we are using paneer so that even eggetarians can enjoy this recipe. Chicken baida roti is very famous dish in Mumbai. If you do not have paneer at home and still want to prepare this roti/parcel go for boiled potatoes instead of paneer. Enjoy this dish as a starter or snacks.
