Rajgira Paratha is made from Amaranth (Rajgira) flour. Amaranth is a superfood that has twice as many proteins as any other millets or dals. It is also a great source of fibre, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus and iron, along with several other micronutrients. 

Here, chef Pankaj makes the Rajgira paratha even more delicious and nutritious by adding a stuffing of paneer to it. Paneer or cottage cheese is a great source of protein.

This Rajgira paratha is tasty, wholesome and awesome.
