Those who are not used to the rustic flavour and texture of bajra parathas often find it too dry. But, even they will find these Stuffed Bajra Parathas to be absolutely enjoyable. A filling of grated paneer perked up with aromatic fenugreek leaves and tangy tomatoes makes these Stuffed Parathas soft and super tasty too.

The Bajra Parathas have to be handled carefully as they tend to break easily. Make sure you seal the dough circles well, and also take care to handle the parathas gently when you lift them and lay them on the Tava to cook.

Enjoy them for Breakfast or as a One Dish Meal .
