Parathas are a staple food all over India; yes, even in South India! There are so many regional variations that you could keep making parathas every single day and you still wouldn't get bored! As people get more health conscious, the trend has been towards using whole grains and millets when making this traditional dish, as well as using vegetables as stuffing and in the dough. Today, we have a super-healthy multigrain paratha recipe, that is packed with the nutrition from 6 millets, grains, nuts and seeds - a super-paratha if there ever was one!
