- Garnish the stuffing with coriander leaves and completely cool it before rolling parathas.
- Take a medium ball sized dough and roll it a little.
- Take same sized stuffing and place it on the rolled dough. Cover the dough and pinch off the extra and roll paratha again. Rolling should be gentle so that the stuffing stays intact and not spilled out from the dough.
- Heat a tawa and apply oil to it. Place the rolled paratha on it and cook it for two minutes on a medium flame.
- The apply oil on the upper side of the paratha and flip and cook it again. Apply oil again and flip the paratha.

“Any other vegetables of your choice may be used to enhance the nutritional value of the parathas.
