Spinach-Corn Paratha

How much I love making parathas!!! And when it’s about any sort of stuffed paratha, that serves a complete meal itself :) Till now, I was scared of trying anything using sweet corn, as hubby doesn’t like it much. And still I took a risk of trying this classic combo – “Spinach n Corn’ in making paratha! Believe me, it tasted so yummy…

Of course, kids hardly like eating green leafy vegetables… And this is possibly a way to make them like it! Corn lends amazing sweetness and spinach with lots of fiber :) But for little fuzzy eaters, addition of potato works great ;) Isn’t it a great idea to try out in your kitchen?
