Palak Paratha is one of the healthiest paratha. Spinach is abundance in nutrients so i like to include this veggie in my family food in one or the other way. I made these parathas years before after that i shifted my diet pattern according to my sons palette. Now he eats rotis and parathas so i  can include them again in my diet by making more healthy parathas like this.

       Parathas are tasty and healthy if they are prepared using less oil. Perfect for travel food and also for lunch boxes. Prepare this parathas weekly once at your home and stay healthy.
