Roasted besan has a rich and appetising aroma, a property that is usually used well in the realm of sweets. However, we have innovatively used roasted besan along with taste givers like ginger-green chilli paste, as the stuffing for whole wheat parathas.
This simple yet tasty Besan Paratha is also healthy as it is loaded with fibre, iron and vitamin B complex. You just need to make sure that you serve this Zero Oil Besan Paratha immediately on preparation, while it is still fluffy and soft, as it tends to get dry upon cooling.
Serve with Fatless Maa ki Dal or Rajma Saagwala or just plain Low Fat Curds .
