Makes : 4-5

Time taken : 45 minutes & serves : 2

Good to remember: 

1. Use very tender Knol kol veggie for the dish.  Else grating is not possible and will not be tasty too!!!

2. Using both red chili powder and green chili will make the paratha tastier, as the veggie is a little weird to taste.
