Mint paratha, pudina paratha in steps
Written by Jayashree
Published on August 9, 2017

Have you ever tried making mint paratha? If not, do give a try to it. They are aromatic and refreshing. The smell of mint leaves can never be locked, it spills everywhere. No need of any accompaniment, you can serve it with curds and pickle.

Last year, I was going through Tarla Dalal vegetarian cook book and it was then I found this mint paratha. Since then, I have made it many times.

    This sounds so much more healthier for me than regular bread on the side. It seems perfect for dipping in soup.
