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.
