It is a luxury to have paratha or stuffed flatbread for breakfast or brunch because it’s a filling, nutritious and delicious food – the filling of the stuffed paratha is the delicious factor.
Why did I opt for carrots as filling for the paratha?
Because carrots have a pleasant-sweet flavour, this flavour of carrot easily blends with flavours of other ingredients; on the nutritious aspect, carrot is a source of variety of nutrients and is especially rich in provitamin A beta-carotene – beta carotene is an antioxidant that can be found in yellow, orange, and green leafy vegetables and fruits.
So how did I make the carrot filling delicious and healthy?
- It took me only two ingredients to flavour the carrot mince filling
- One of the ingredients imparted carrot mince filling with rich texture and flavour, the other ingredient imparted pleasant mild-pungent flavour; so the carrot filling of this paratha has the pleasant combine flavour of sweetness, spiciness along with a rich luxurious flavour and texture
Making this stuffed carrot paratha/flatbread is quite easy, know the process …
