I love paratha's soo much and specially when it comes with greens. I normally grind palak and make chappati or puries. This is the somthing new I learnt from Raks kitchen which tastes fabulous. The main advantage of making parathas is that it goes well with simple curd or pickles. No need to think of side dish ;) Thank u soo much raks for sharing such attractive and delicious paratha.
