The well-thought-out choice of spices in the stuffing is sure to delight your taste buds. This healthy variation of Tandoori Paratha is a sure hit!

Oil is usually added to the flour to make a smooth and soft dough, but to curb the use of oil, I have added low fat curds which also produces the desired effect.
