Let's give our favourite Bengali snack an awesomely healthy makeover.

Parota is a famous Bengali snack, which is usually made with maida. Here we have made it with whole wheat flour for a guilt free experience, and further fortified the dough with chawli leaves for a powerful shot of iron.

Have the Chawli Leaves Parota right off the pan to relish the vibrant taste of ginger and garlic in this mouth watering Indian bread.

Tried this out. Just added a little chaat masala in the end while rolling for personal taste. Paratha''s are amazing. Eat while hot. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe.
