Generally, people are wary of packing millet based Rotis for lunch because they think it would harden. However, when prepared with the right mix of wheat flour and other ingredients like vegetables and spices, they remain soft and tasty for at least 4 hours.

This Jowar and Vegetable Paratha with carrot, spinach, roasted jeera and spice powders is not only very tasty but also colourful and pleasant to look at, so kids will feel tempted to bite into them. Quite tasty by themselves, these Parathas can just be rolled up and eaten, without requiring any accompaniment.
