Spring Onion-Coriander Paratha

Winters can be hard on health.While most of us prefer staying indoors and sipping hot cup of tea and soups,it is also a good time to enjoy all the seasonal fresh green veggies, fruits and nuts.
Make sure you eat healthy this winter by including all the winter foods in your diet.
Today I'm going to share a paratha recipe with spring onions and fresh green coriander leaves.Serve this paratha for breakfast or lunch with a bowl of curd and some pickle.This is also another way to sneak veggies into your kid's tiffin.Pack them in their lunch box with some healthy salads and pickles.
