Ragi is called a wonder grain, and rightly so. Not only is it nutritious, but prepared the right way it can be quite tasty too. Once you develop a taste for ragi and the other millets, you would always prefer to have these instead of refined and polished grains. This sumptuous gluten-free paratha of nutritious ragi flour is packed with a succulent mixture of grated carrots and paneer, pepped up with coriander and green chillies. The juicy filling makes the ragi parathas enjoyably soft, transforming the Stuffed Nachni Paratha into an enjoyable meal for the whole family.

Nachni offers a significant and fab taste to the parathas.. Stuffing is an add-on.. It is a wonderful combination of the nachni paratha and the stuffing..
