Eggplant Masala Paratha

I prepared a simple eggplant masala with mashed eggplants, after having those mashed eggplant masala there were some leftovers and i tried out making this simple paratha using those eggplant masala...These parathas tastes marvellous and they even need anything as side dish..Its quite a different one from the usual paratha and we loved it..This paratha goes even for a simple dinner or else for lunch when served along with some pickled veggies or raitas....Do try friends, am damn sure that u guys will definitely love this different and delicious parathas...Sending to Healing Foods-Eggplants guest hosted by Kavita,event by Siri..
