Nutritious Herb Parantha

Nutritious Herb Parantha

This is my third entry for Priya’s Shhhhh Cooking Secretly Challenge.This event really makes all of us put on our thinking caps and innovate to the maximum.For people who are reading this post for the first time,this is an event where pairs of Food Bloggers are made,and out of them each have to give 2 ingredients to the other.The other has to do the same thing and both come up with a completely new and innovative recipe.These recipes are very simple and can be made with the normal ingredients you get in the market.

For the event for this month,I was paired with Sangee Vijay who has a wonderful site at:


Sangee gave me 2 ingredients – Cilantro(Coriander Leaves) and Wheat Flour.I decided to combine some more herbs and turn them into a wonderful Parantha which is quite refreshing to eat with a sweet pickle and yogurt.Thank you Sangee for inspiring me to make something innovative and thank you Priya for starting the wonderful event!Here is the lovely logo for the event –
