Rajgira Paratha

This is the second day of fasting I am sharing this healthy and gluten free Rajgira flour Paratha/Roti recipe. Rajgira flour is amaranth seed flour and is considered to be a superfood because of its highly nutritive value.I guess I should include it in our diet more often rather than only in fasting.

1 cup Rajgira/amaranth/Chaulai flour
1 medium sized potato,boiled
