Pregnancy Rotis, Parathas recipes
Last Updated : Dec 19,2017
Rotis and parathas and flat Indian bread which are cooked in every households as a daily fare. They are either plain, or stuffed with a variety of ingredients to make them more satiating and appetizing. They are enjoyed for lunch or dinner, but in North India they form a part of traditional breakfast as well.
While wheat flour is the most common flour used to make rotis and parathas, we have explored making them using a variety of flours like jowar flour, bajra flour, oats etc. to craft recipes like Matki and Jowar Paratha, Multigrain Garlic Roti. On days that you want to try making a healthy stuffed paratha, turn to Paneer Paratha - to gain in some calcium or Stuffed Bajra Roti – to make up for iron, which is of course required during the entire nine months of gestation.
There’s no better nourishing meal than serving these rotis / parathas with a nice vegetable gravy or a bowl of Curd. While some prefer pickles as an accompaniment too, but we would not recommend it can cause heart burn, acidity or aggravate already existing high blood pressure or swollen feet if any.
