A stuffed paratha is an ultimate go-to breakfast option for many. It fills you up to the brim and kick-starts your day with its numerous flavours. If there's nothing else in your kitchen to cook a full-fledged meal, pick any veggie and use it as a stuffing to make a stuffed paratha. Be it aloo paratha, gobhi paratha, pyaz paratha or anda paratha, all of these are some of the most popular paratha varieties that we usually make at home for breakfast. But, if you are looking for more interesting options to spruce up your regular breakfast meal, then you may want to take a look at this amazing recipe of besan masala paratha. Evidently, this paratha is made with gram flour (besan) mixed with whole wheat flour (atta).
Normally, all parathas are made with just whole wheat flour but the addition of gram flour levels up this meal with its distinct nutty flavour and health-benefitting properties. Besan is made from ground chickpea (or Bengal gram), and is used to cook a variety of Indian meals like cheela, pakoda and kadhi. It loads up on some vital nutrients like fibre, proteins, and minerals like iron, magnesium and copper.
