Health Benefits of Lachha Paratha
Although lachha paratha may seem like a calorie-heavy dish at first, you can make a healthy variant at home by using less oil. One can also substitute maida with atta and include some fibres like powdered oats. To increase the taste, even more, they can be stuffed with spinach, coriander, or other healthy greens. You can also increase the health benefits by pairing it up with vegetable curries instead of meat. While ghee is preferred to make these flatbreads, any other oil will also give it as good a taste. Despite popular belief, ghee consumed in a small quantity can give us all the vitamins we need. Whole wheat flour on the other hand is good for diabetics and it is rich in phosphorus. It is also rich in Folic Acid and is a powerful antioxidant. Instead of having a curry, it can be paired up with some healthy raitas or even just plain home-made curd. The best thing about any dish is that you can customize it according to your dietary needs! So why not start with making healthier yet delicious variants of the immensely popular lachha paratha?
