Amazing way to add extra proteins into you diet. The pickle masala gives it a wonderful kick and great flavor and these Parathas don’t need any kind of accompaniment with it – just roll and go. We are constantly asked about parathas and rotis to make for lunch boxes and tiffins for school and lunch that will stay soft for a long time, well, here is the perfect answer.
