SWEET POTATO/SIHI GENASINA PARATHA using whole wheat flour

Posted in : BREAKFAST RECIPES, DIABETIC FRIENDLY RECIPES on by : Divya Suresh

Yet another winter special paratha recipe, in which we can use either whole wheat flour or mixed grains flour and which can be served at breakfast time or during lunch and which is a diabetic friendly recipe as well, as they are high in fiber and have a low glycemic index. Foods with a low glycemic index have less of an immediate impact on blood glucose levels, and therefore can help diabetics control their blood sugar. And moreover it is a very filling dish to have at breakfast/lunch. As such no accompaniment is needed to go with this paratha, but by choice we can have it with any kind of curry/raita. While I boiled sweet potatoes as stuffing for paratha, I also thought of making rice rotti with the same stuffing. So divided the stuffing into two parts and made paratha as well as akki rotti/rice roti. Both tasted really yummy, and will share the recipe of akki rotti/rice roti by tomorrow. The below mentioned quantity of ingredients yielded 4 nos., of paratha.
