mINT FLAVORED INDIAN FLAT BREADPudina paratha is one my favorite Indian flat bread and i used to order this whenever we go to restaurants. I wanted to try pudina paratha at home for a long time, but somehow it doesn’t happen and finally i made this last weekend it turned out very nice. I wanted to try this as laccha paratha which is normally made in restaurants, but my laziness didn’t allow me and finally i rolled it into parathas.
