cabbage cheese paratha recipe for kids. I often make paratha for the kids to have after school. This cabbage cheese paratha is one of their favorite. It tastes good on its own or with a mint or green chutney. It must be served hot.
This is a simple idea to make a cheese paratha. You can also replace cabbage with any of your favorite veggies like carrot, cauliflower or capsicum.
