This fabulous Matki and Jowar Paratha is very effective in recharging your iron levels during pregnancy. Boiled and crushed matki is mixed with a dough of whole wheat flour and jowar flour to make these luscious parathas.

The addition of boiled matki makes these parathas quite soft and flavourful, so just a dash of common spice powders is enough to perk up the taste further. Going slow on the spices also helps to avoid acidity, which is common during pregnancy. This satiating paratha is a wonderful way of including iron-rich ingredients like jowar and matki in your diet. Relish it hot and fresh with dal .
