up ka paratha, hyderabad ki biryani, lassi tarbooj ki or soup hai badami,...

Urad kachori is a must prepared delicacy during Holi festival ,but i didnt knew that parathas could also be prepared with kachori mixture,last year when i prepared Kachodis in Singapore i asked my mother what to do with left over filling,she told me to prepare parathas with them,so this year when there was leftover filling in the fridge,i thought of making Parathas and ya they turned out delicious and crispy,procedure is same as allo ka paratha reipe which i have blogged earlier its just that instead of allo mixture kachori mix has to be filled in,we enjoyed crispy urad dal parathas with allo gobhi tamatar sabji and bharwa lal mirch ka aachar.
ingredient needed for Allo Gobhi Tamarar Sabji
cauliflower florets chopped and kept in boiled water for 5 minutes drain and keep aside -one cup

if needed sprinkle few drops of water and cover and cook.
before removing from flame sprinkle garam masala powder mix well and simmer for 2 to 3 mins
serve hot with parathas.
