Mixed Vegetable Paratha

At Last I have got that recipe which my kids will eat without any fuss. In fact I expect them to demand this from me very frequently. I feel that feeding vegetables to kids is most difficult part of parenting. Whatever vegetable  my elder daughter ( Dia ) likes is what my younger daughter ( Aaesha ) won't touch.
You can mix any kind of vegetable ( specially that vegetable which your kids won't eat and you want them to )  and your kids won't know it. Dia does not like beans, green peas, tomatoes etc. And Aaesha does not like"Aloo"(Potatoes) Yeah, I know its hard to believe. :) This vegetable Paratha is a "Life Savior" for me !!
