Veggie Stuffed Braided Paratha

Hi All, Hope you all are doing good. I am back with new twisted paratha / bread recipe. Today, I tried it first time only and the results were awesome. So couldn't stop my hands to share my recipe with you all. They were really easy to prepare except the factor of time.

This weekend I’ll be sharing my very own version of the braided bread but . . . with a little “twist!” this is not the bake version, just shallow fry one.. Instead of pastry dough I simply use whole wheat-flour dough to make it much easier and healthy. Feel free to substitute any kind of vegetable you wish or mix it up with your favorite ingredients and spices.

But when I make these, I just use cooked vegetable ingredient is available at that moment. This recipe looks complicated and that’s what makes it awesome and your guests will think you went through all that trouble to prepare something amazingly good!!  But it really is easy and simple.

I took some photos while I was making these so hopefully you’ll have a visual idea of how this thing goes. Without further delay, I present to you "Veggie Stuffed Braided Paratha". Enjoy your weekend with this braided bread. I am planning to prepare minced meat next time for the stuffing.

Finish the folding.
