Paranthas packed with so much nutrition and taste that you just can’t get them wrong! All different kinds of flours and some leafy vegetables – This is a one pot meal in itself, really!
I absolutely heart one pot or rather one dish meals. Yes, I love cooking and there are times when I have made a 5-course meal for many people but there are times when I don’t want to do anything and end up making one item which will be a complete balance meal.. Whether it is pulaos, khichdis, or pastas, I love all the usual ones. But as we are talking about one pot meals, what about paranthas? There are so many things we can do to a parantha and come up with a yummy and fully balanced meal in itself.
I got thinking about one pot meals paranthas and made this parantha. It tasted absolutely divine and with a bowl of curd and some salad, it was one meal which was complete in itself! Wheat and ragi provide the cereals, gram flour and soya are pulses and hence provide the proteins. Methi and spinach are the veggies and that too green veggies. Some curd added to the dough and then a little curd to eat along for dairy products and its as balanced as it can get.
That is what is lovely about paranthas! Add what you want and you can still have everyone eating it up because they taste so yum. I personally believe there are very few breakfast recipes as wholesome and filling like a parantha! I guess it is obvious from the sheer number of paranthas recipes I have on the blog, that I am a big fan of paranthas! I can eat them any time of the day or night! Full of health and deliciousness! Whether it is an avocado cheese parantha (which are great for the lunchbox, by the way!) or the traditional namak aur ajwain ka parantha (which are awesome with tea!) or the super healthy protein rich Sattu parantha, each of it is unique in its way and so yummy!
So try out these nutrition packed paranthas, and you will end up making them time and again 🙂
