Just got back after a really nice relaxing Xmas break and its still hard to wake up for school in the morning.I pity the lil one who had to get going today.Tonight will be a simple dinner this radish/mooli paratha which i love a lot because I'm still in holiday mode and the weekend is right here too.
I love parathas they are most easy to make and also no compromises on the health factor because we have veggies going in too.I make them when theres no mood to make a side dish for chapathis.People make chapathis with almost everything now.I even saw on tv recently someone made plantain/vazhakka parathas.I so wanted to try it that i kept delaying to use the raw plantain in the fridge it ripened and turned into pazham pori!!Thats not a good thing but still bananas are really versatile and healthy be it the raw or ripe form!
Mostly if its parathas the side dish would be a simple raita but you can serve any dish along with it.
