When I was thinking about the third dish for the 30 mins meal mela, I remembered this recipe that I had long bookmarked. It was supposed to be for picnic food ideas and I couldn't do this theme when I had it earlier. So I thought I might as well do it now. The fact that it suited this theme was such a great coincidence.
I have never thought of stuffing this way as I can do the regular stuffing very well. So when I was telling my colleague that I made this way, she was surprised and asked if this was the way I normally do. I said it is not, but this recipe was supposed to be made this way and I wasn't about to change the method and lose the fun. If you must ask me, I was missing the fun part that comes when you actually stuff something inside a paratha and roll it out. There is no excitement about layering one roti over the other. But I guess it works out great for those who find it tough to roll out.
Anyway we had a great dinner. I wanted to make it very colourful and I was so happy seeing the pictures. As I write this, we will be away on vacation. It completely missed my thoughts that we will be travelling during this weekend. So all the posts are scheduled. Will be back to check on things
