Sweet variation of appas (rice bread) using Suva bhaji. Knead the dough when hot otherwise it will harden on keeping. Not so very popular with many of you, Suva bhaji is sweet to taste and is a rich source of vitamin A.

I always wondered what is another way of making my children eat dill, thanks to this recipe they gulped down the paratha in secs and asked for more... It is soft and tasty because of the rice flour and yummy too...
