Vegetable Paratha Recipe - Mixed Veg Paratha | Paratha Recipes

Vegetable Paratha Recipe
Vegetable Paratha is my all time favorite - I make it both ways either pressure cooking the veggies and adding it along with the flour and another one is sauteing the veggies and cooking to make it as a stuffing.
For this mixed paratha, you dont need any side dish at all just raita is enough to finish off the dinner or meal. At the same time its wholesome and healthy with all the veggies.I'm sure kids who hesitate to eat veggies will like this paratha with pickle and raita.

My Notes:

  • You can alternatively saute the veggies and cook and make it as a stuffing.
  • For 2 cups of flour see to it that your sauted veggies comes to 1 cup atleast.
  • Veggies is totally of your choice, you can even use green peas, paneer also etc
  • Be very careful while adding water as the veggies will leave out water.
