In most homes, left-overs vegetables are used for making delicious stuffed parathas. But this is a paratha with a difference. Since papad is a personal favourite of mine, I have invented this unique type of paratha with a spicy papad filling. I have used fried papad for the stuffing, but you can also roast the papads if you wish. I am sure this paratha will be an all time favourite for all papad lovers.

    4. Roll out again into a circle of 125 mm. (5") diameter with the help of a little flour.
    5. Cook the paratha on a tava (griddle), using a little oil until both sides are golden brown.
    6. Repeat with the remaining dough and filling to make 5 more parathas.
