Rajma Parantha

Blogging Marathon # 49 , Week 1 Day : 3
Theme : Indian Bread Basket
Course : Breakfast , Brunch

Today is Rajma day in my house. So thought why not start the day with nutritious and fulfilling breakfast with Rajma. This recipe is made with simple ingredients yet a star in itself. Again this is one of the recipes I learnt from Sindhi family friend. I like ti so much that try to make it now and then. As it is very nutritious and also very good for diabetic people as it is made from complex carbohydrate and helps to maintain the sugar level. It does not spike sugar level as normal roti does.

It is great for kids who are fuzzy about food and can be given as lunch they would love this if you give them with some cheese sauce.
