Easy Recipe to Follow:

These parathas are a bit spicy and delicious. They are made in the same way as the regular plain chapatis. The dish is unique because it is folded 2-3 times while rolling the dough and has ghee inside them. So it ends up being a flakey, layered snack that stays soft for quite some time. The ghee makes these parathas smell awesome. Children love to have these colorful pancakes in their lunchboxes.

Let's see how to make these soft and spicy pancakes.
