Every other person complains of acidity these days, due to a stressful lifestyle and irregular food habits. However, eating the right foods can keep acidity at bay.
Make your stomach smile again, with this yummy and healthy Green Pea Paratha. Green pea is said to be alkaline, and when combined with wheat flour, it helps to balance the acid-alkaline ratio.
Go easy on the spices, to make the job easy for your stomach! Avoid using too much fat for cooking the parathas as that too can aggravate acidity.
As a variant, you can use bajra flour instead of soya flour as that too is alkaline. Enjoy these delectable parathas hot and fresh, for breakfast or as the main course for lunch or dinner.
