I was looking for some different kind of stuffed paratha as i was really bored of having the same common one''s. Must say kabuli chana and coconut make a really good combo.. They are super delicious and i suggest each one of you to definitely give this recipe a try..

These parathas are super duper hit in my family.The kabuli chana and coconut is a very rare and unique combination which i had never thought of, but trust me it is an amazing one! The chaat masala and coriander gives a very nice taste. If you are looking for some change from the regular parathas, this one is something you should not miss..
