It is amazing what a little innovation can result in! In this unique variant of the common phudina paratha, we have boosted the nutrient content by stuffing the mint-flavoured chapatis with loads of crunchy veggies, while reducing the calorie count by cooking the parathas using very little oil. As the Minty Green Peas and Cabbage Paratha is bubbling with flavours, you do not need any oil-laden pickles or gravies to go with it, just low-fat curds and green chutney will be great!
