Stuffed spinach paratha

Spinach and paneer make a great combination of iron and calcium. Stuffed parathas packed with curds make a simple and wholesome lunch. Spinach is a rich source of iron and cottage cheese is rich in calcium and protein. Together they make a super-duper healthy meal in itself. Pack this for your kid’s lunch or pack it for your hubby’s office lunch. They taste so yummy and pairs well with raita, dal makhani, and salad.
