A delicacy that is easy and quick to make, if you use leftover rice to make these Parathas… in fact this is an interesting way to utilize the leftover rice. I have used powdered soya chunks in this recipe. Those who do not like soya granules or chunks can just powder it finely and add them to recipes… no one will even realize there is any soya in it. Curds add a nice tangy flavour to these Parathas; try to use slightly sour curds for an enhanced taste. To make these Parathas soft, knead the dough loosely, and roll them gently using whole wheat flour for rolling, or on a greased plastic sheet.
