Tofu Paratha

Lunchbox recipes are always the hardest to come up with. For kids as well as for adults, an exciting lunch box dish can be an extra source of joy! My little one is quite particular about his lunch box. He usually prefers parathas, dosa or sandwiches.

So, for and because of my son, I always end up trying out a variety of parathas that give me enough options to load it up with nutrients!

Once such trial was the Tofu Paratha 🙂
