Anything with prefix Paratha,grabs my attention, since its so convenient to make these and also to pack for lunchbox, as they make such a non fussy and non messy wholesome meal for kids while at school.So I always look out for various stuffing, to make the parathas a never ending love affair for my kid ;-)
