Parathas cooked on a tava or rotis cooked on an open flame, we love all of them… It is our staple diet and thus a wide variety is needed to avoid monotony.

This section has all-in-one-parathas like Bajra Gajar Palak Paratha, Jowar Methi Roti, Moong Dal and Paneer Paratha which make use two sources of iron – a leafy vegetable and a cereal / pulse like bajra, jowar or Moong Dal. On the other hand, you will also find stuffed parathas like Besan Paratha and Soya and Cauliflower Paratha. So just by learning to combine the right kind of ingredients, it is ease to quick-fix an iron rich fare in your own kitchen.

Rotis are no exception. Ragi Roti, Jowar Bajre ki Roti, Mixed Sprouts and Bajra Roti are sure to please your palate and make up for your iron requirements which will help to escalate your haemoglobin levels and keep you energetic through the rest of the day.
