How to Prepare
    • To prepare the dough, mix both the flour types, ghee, salt and knead them with soft hands, pouring warm water at intervals.
    • When prepared, cover the dough and keep it aside for around 20 minutes.
    • To prepare the stuffing, in a bowl, mix jaggery, cardamom powder, coconut, almonds, sesame seeds, fennel seeds and ghee.
    • Divide dough into equal portions and make round balls.
    • Flatten the balls, a bit concave at the centre, and put a tablespoon of the stuffing.
    • Now, close from all the sides to form round-like balls.
    • Again, flatten the balls lightly with palms and roll them in a shape of a roti.
    • In a chapati pan, cook the stuffed paratha on both sides with the help of little ghee or oil.
