I love stuffed pratha / Chapatti / Chappati / Chapathi. It is so easy to do and also perfect for one pot meal or lunch box. It is also perfect for options to sneak in vegetables / dhals / legumes. My kids love stuffed parathas. So when Srividhya gave me Rajma and cheese for this month secret ingredients I was very happy I was having this in my to do list for long time.
