I am a great fan of Pav Bhaji and ever since I have given up on bread I didn’t know how to incorporate this Bhaji in my meal . I am off wheat too , so had to come up with something innovative .

I made the Bhaji , but made it little dry , cooked it and then added some jowar flour to it , binded this into a dough , added some extra Pav Bhaji masala and made rotlas out of it . The rotlas or parathas turned out very flavourful and trust me We enjoyed them to the core . While the rotla was being cooked the house was full of Pav Bhaji aroma . I did not apply any oil or butter, but a dollop of butter will definitely bring these parathas to a different level.

These parathas are my Day 1 post under the theme whole grains .
