Whole Wheat Parotta

Parotta is the layered flat bread which is made of Maida (All purpose flour). The speciality of this yummy tiffin  is that it has crunchy outer layer with soft and cushy inner layers. We love to have this by pouring vegetable kurma on it and have the soaked spicy parottas. When this Parotta is made with whole wheat flour you can enjoy it without any guilt...
