Greens and carrots, interestingly flavoured with ginger, green chillies and other common but effective taste-givers, form the stuffing for these sumptuous whole wheat parathas.
The combination of spinach and chawli greens gives the parathas a unique, very appetizing taste that you are sure to enjoy.
Since the Spicy Chawli Leaves and Spinach Stuffed Paratha has a rich and spicy taste by itself, you can just serve it with a cup of curds.
This is a fabulous way to use chawli leaves, and you will be happy to see your whole family relishing it!
