Loved the combination of ingredients in this stuffing. The recipe here says roll the paratha into 4 inch, but I rolled it into 5 inch to make it a bit thinner. However do roll gently, else the stuffing might spill out.

These parathas are Chatpatta and could be a great snack enjoyed with curd... or can also be served with some nice healthy subzi at lunch or supper... although it may seem difficult but... the parathas were very easy to roll... and we all relished it... Great recipe!!!
