Beetroot Stuff Green Paratha

 The name of the dish itself sounds interesting. Yes , I made this for Taste and Create event. It was a monthly event in which each blogger is paired with a blogger. This was my first challenge and I was paired with Hetal of Gujarati Zaika. Her blog has many interesting recipes , but I selected this colorful recipe as today is the Holi festival. This paratha was colorful and apt for the festival season.

 This is healthy paratha as many vegetables are used in making this. It will be appealing to everyone's eyes. It was a excellent recipe for lunchbox.

Place the stuffing in the middle and secure the edges fully.

Roll again gently with care not to leak out the filling.
