Masala Khichdi Paratha

Many elders believe that if you want to have a quick and healthy meal, there’s nothing like khichdi! They are very right. Khichdi is so healthy even the leftover should not be wasted. So, here is a way of making parathas using khichdi combined with whole wheat flour and besan. The Masala Khichdi Paratha is a great breakfast option, but can be carried to work as well if you wish. They are filling and nourishing, and tasty too thanks to an assortment of flavourful additions to the dough. With a cup of low-fat curds, these parathas make a complete meal.

Quick to make and good use of leftover khichdi, the chilkewali moong ki dal in the khichdi imparts a sweet taste to the parathas.
