Vegetable Paratha is my all time favorite - I make it both ways either pressure cooking the veggies and adding it along with the flour and another one is sauteing the veggies and cooking to make it as a stuffing.
For this mixed paratha, you dont need any side dish at all just raita is enough to finish off the dinner or meal. At the same time its wholesome and healthy with all the veggies.I'm sure kids who hesitate to eat veggies will like this paratha with pickle and raita.
