The best combo ever: Okay. Now, let me reveal the name of breakfast meal which I am sharing today. This is Rajma Tofu Paratha Pockets. These are stuffed flatbread bites which are stuffed with amazingly delish ingredients. They are served with Boondi Raita which is a cool refreshing yogurt based side dish. Raita goes perfectly well with parathas. To me, Paratha and raita are a match made in heaven. You can read more about boondi raita in my previous post about Fruity-Veggie Boondi Raita.

I am crazy about this: Stuffed Parathas are my childhood obsession. At a time they were my one and only favorite breakfasts. Whenever my Mom raised this question: “What will you have for breakfast tomorrow?”

My reply was always like this, “Any type of Stuffed paratha or sandwiches.”

Trip down the memory lane: I was so predictable for my Mom. Later she asked the same question to me only when she already had made her mind for making parathas. And may be asking that question assured her that there are at least two people who are supporting the idea of having parathas for breakfast! 😉 I am telling you all this because I just can’t help it. This ‘Paratha’ word itself brings so many awesome memories.
