In a small mixing bowl, add the shredded cheese and spices. Mix well so that the cheese is covered in the spices.

Make the filling

In a larger mixing bowl, whisk together  whole wheat flour and a small pinch of salt. Add in half the water, and  start combining with your hands.

Prepare the dough

Place a quarter of the cheese mixture into the middle of the dough. Bring the edges of the dough up, and form into a ball.

Stuff the paratha

Dust the stuffed dough ball with some additional flour, and roll out carefully into a circle.

Form the paratha

Heat a cast iron skillet or an iron tawa  if you have one, over medium heat. Place the rolled out paratha on the  hot skillet, without oil.
