Stuffed parathas are healthy and tasty too when compared to plain ones. The stuffing varies from Aloo paratha, Broccoli paratha, Beansprouts paratha, Mooli paratha, Cabbage paratha...etc. The mixed vegetable paratha is a healthy version of stuffed paratha. These are colourful and tasty paratha, best as travel food and also aptly suits kids' or adults' lunch box. This does not require any gravies to pair with as it has inside all the vegetables.

       I love this stuffed paratha as it does not require curries and works so easy like one pot meal. Kids too like this because it is a less messy food. Can not prepare food healthier than this in a limited time by incorporating all the veggies.
