They are absolutely delicious in every bite and perfect for any meal or packed lunch. 

I had been craving these parathas for so long, so today I finally took some fresh paneer, palak, and made this deliciousness.

However, these parathas are my goto to use leftover palak paneer or a great idea to reuse palak paneer
