Stuffed Bajra Paratha, looking for something to lower blood cholesterol levels? Here’s an exotic version of the humble bajra paraha, stuffed with a paneer, methi and tomato mixture that makes this a scrumptious delicacy. The fibre in bajra binds with the cholesterol and fats and ensures that it is ejected from the system. Serve with garlic chutney for that extra punch!
