Salt to taste

2 cups whole wheat flour (atta)

1. In a bowl, mix atta with salt. Add water slowly to knead it into smooth, pliable dough. Cover with a damp cloth and keep aside for 1/2 an hour.
2. Mix well all the ingredients of the filling except salt.
3. Take lemon sized ball (peda) from the dough and roll out into a 3 inch round. Grease this round lightly by an oiled spatula.
4. Place 2 tsp paneer filling in the center and add salt to it. Mix. Gather the edges of the round and reshape into a ball. Flatten the ball between your palms.
5. Roll out, dusting with dry flour as needed, into a 6-7 inch round.
