Green Beans, almond and coconut stuffed paratha (Indian Flatbread)

It has been a while since I posted some nice flatbread recipe! But then there are a couple of recipes coming your way soon 😀 I love trying out different flatbreads/parathas because not only are they easy to make but also quite filling. And you can practically be as creative as you want with the filling – go all the way from sweet ones to savory ones and downright spicy fillings. And if you are looking to sneak some healthy stuff for fussy eaters – this is the path to take 🙂

Moong Dal And Onions Stuffed Indian Flatbread or Paratha

Parathas are so versatile! You can make the filling in so many different delicious ways and it is a definite crowd pleaser. Aloo parathas (parathas or flatbreads stuffed with potato) served hot with some yogurt or pickle is a traditional breakfast in so many homes! But I am not here to talk about that 😉 This is another tasty, filling and delicious paratha where I have used moong dal (lentils), onions and mild Indian spices to prepare the stuffing. It definitely increases the protein content of the dish, don’t you think?
