Veg. Loaded Parathas

      I know, vegetables are not very likable in kid's but I also know kids always like Parathas. So let's try to feed them Parathas with lots of vegetables, and I'm pretty sure that they will like it and ask more for this Parathas.
         
Not only kids but all age people would like to eat this Veg. Loaded Prathas any time for sure.
      Parathas are basically from northern side of India, but now with lots of variation Paraths are famous all over in India and overseas too. I love to eat parathas. There are no talks at the table when parathas are on it.. My kids love to eat this Veg. loaded parathas with yogurt. And me and my hubby love to eat with pickle. I usally make a big pile of them that kids can grab and pack them for school's lunch too. Parathas can be eaten as a breakfast or tea-time or lunch and dinner, choice is yours. So get ready to try something new this time.
