Bajra is very rich in fibre, iron, calcium and protein. Parathas made of bajra flour are very nutritious and tasty, but require a lot of practice to roll evenly. Yet, the Spicy Bajra Paratha is definitely worth the time spent. In this creation, the rotis are further enhanced with a filling of paneer and methi leaves. Serve the parathas hot with low-fat curds for a delectable meal that will keep you satiated for a long while.
