Loved these Mexican style parathas perked up with oregano and chilli flakes with some coloured capsicum. Moreover they taste great when cooked in minimal oil also. They are so yummy that when served off the tava, it doesn''t require any accompaniment.

This recipe is perfect to impress someone. MY mom likes these. I also made these for my (to be-) husband (then).. who now keeps demanding these on every little celebrations we have. The 2C combination of cheese and capsicum surprises your taste buds ending is pleasure and sounds of YUMM.
