Mix vegetable paratha is a much-loved food in India. They are made with a stuffing of vegetables, spices and herbs in a dough. They are cooked with ghee or oil and served with yoghurt or chutney. They are nutritious and rich in fibre, vitamins, and minerals.

Upgrade your Mix Veg Paratha to become healthier
• Try making parathas with multigrain flour instead of plain processed flour. This will introduce complex carbs. They can slow down the release of glucose in your blood.
• Consider making paratha fillings with vegetables that are high in fibre and low in starch content. You may use carrots, spinach, cabbage, and cauliflower.
• You can add proteins like paneer, green peas and dal for healthier parathas.
• Fenugreek leaves make a healthy stuffing that is good for diabetes.
• Adding curd while kneading the flour will bring in probiotics that improve gut health.

To enjoy Mix veg paratha without guilt, you can use healthier fillings and lesser oil. Starchy vegetables like potatoes and turnips can cause blood sugar spikes. Walking for 45 mins can help burn off the calories. It is important to eat them in moderation and balance with healthy diet to avoid health problems.
