Mixed Vegetable Paratha Version - 1

Paratha is such an interesting recipe if the items are ready it can be done within few minutes.I have given two versions using the same dough.The first version  is "Layered Paratha"for kids using ghee.
This is an healthy option for kids as it uses Methi along with other veggies.The bitter taste of methi is not felt at all
Just 2 parathas will keep the tummy full

Ingredients
Part 1 - Vegetables
  • Methi leaves - 1 bundle 
  • Potato - 2 (medium sized)
  • Carrot - 2 (small sized)

Chop methi leaves and coriander leaves.Grate the remaining vegetables.See the pic below
