If paratha is not eaten as a paratha, it is best eaten as a roll. Every other day, one or more parathas are left untouched in our hot box after a meal. And we never let it go to waste. We fashion it into other yummy delights and eat it as a snack or a full meal later. Kids love to spread jam on the paratha and roll it. We often just stuff a sabzi in it and have a filling roll. Whatever you do, paratha makes for an excellent roll. And today, we are sharing another great way to repurpose your paratha, this time in a more indulgent way.
Who doesn't love chicken rolls? We all do unless some of us are vegetarians. It makes for a wholesome meal, full of nutrients and flavours. We all love having it at restaurants or taking it out to eat on the go.
