Paratha is one type of unleavened Indian flat bread in which different stuffs are added to make it more delicious but it can be made plain as well. Parathas can be served with curd or pickle or butter. I will share other stuffing parathas in future.
Spinach is a complete source of iron and other vitamins. And this paratha is good for children who normally don’t like to have it alone.. So now move to the recipe..
