No Yeast Cheesy Parcels
The outer covering or parcels are made with soft and spongy bread, which is made with yeast. If you avoid yeast for breads or are skeptical in making bread using it. or because of the current situation you cannot get yeast in stores, you can still try this delicious snack. My last post was No Yeast Bread, where we can make bread without using yeast. Certain breads that require yeast and proofing can also be made without it using substitutes . Baking Powder and Baking Soda along with yogurt or buttermilk are the best substitutes for yeast free breads. Though you won;t get the same texture and lightness but for certain breads that can be a good option.
In Indian Cuisine traditional versions of Naan Bread, Bhature and Kulcha can be made without yeast.
The right mix of dry and wet ingredients along with leavening agents gives soft and spongy breads.
Quick and Easy Paneer Tikka Filling
You can use any of your favourite fillings for these parcels. Vegetarian filling with mixed veggies or paneer, and , Non-vegetarian with chicken or minced meat, all go well in these parcels.
I have used my own easy version of Paneer Tikka filling that I make many times for sandwiches or as a simple side with dal and chapatis. No marination, no grilling of tikkas, super quick and easy.
With basic ingredients available in your pantry you can make this flavorful paneer filing.
Paneer or Indian Cottage Cheese, is a favourite ingredient in India homes. Majority of Indians are vegetarians and it one of the main source of protein and calcium after lentils.
A versatile ingredient, Paneer can be used in uncountable ways in Indian Cuisines. Main Course, Snacks, Desserts or as Filling in flatbread, use in any way your like as per your preference.
Since Paneer is made from dairy milk, those who have lactose intolerance should avoid it. Also, for vegans, Tofu is a good substitute for paneer and can be used in many dishes.

Let’s see how to make these Cheesy Paneer Tikka Parcels(No Yeast)
Making these parcels requires two main steps. First one is making the parcel covering and second one os making the filling.
Make Outer Parcel Covering
Parcel covering is made with All Purpose Flour(Maida), but I have used here Whole Wheat Flour, along with Sooji/Semolina. I like to add sooji/semolina to many of the bakes that I do with Whole Wheat flour. It adds to the softness in dough. Also, added oats flour here, which makes it more nutritious.
This same combination of flours I use for my
As mentioned above baking powder and baking soda are used as leavening agents along with buttermilk(milk+vinegar).
Milk Powder and Yogurt here are optional. You can skip those. I add as these give additional softness to whole wheat dough that has higher content.
To make outer covering knead a soft and pailabe dough and keep it covered for about 30 mins.
You can use Pizza Dough (store bought or homemade-Whole Wheat Pizza ) to make parcels in case you want to skip it making from start..
Make Quick Paneer Tikka Filling
For filling I have used basic spices available in your spice box/pantry. Checkout recipe card for details on ingredients.
For Tikka sauce you can use thick/greek yogurt/sour cream/mayonnaise.
Cook Paneer cubes in spices and cool completely before filling.
