Minty Barley Parathas

I prepared myself the barley flour at home by grinding the whole barley grains,  i used immediately the barley flour for making this barley parathas along with chopped mints,ajwain seeds and wholewheat flour..They turned out super soft,healthy and prefect for a breakfast or else for dinner, i served along this paratha along with channa masala..Even my teddies enjoyed having this healthy parathas,obviously this parathas goes to my inbox since am hosting this month's WWC-Barley,event by Sanjeeta and to  my own event CWS-Wheat guest hosted by Suma and finally to PJ's Herbs & Flowers in My Platter..
