Zucchini is a vegetables which originates in America and belongs to the squash family.  It is used in many cuisines but not much famous in Indian cuisine. This low calorie vegetable is highly fibrous and full of nutrients.  Zucchini is high in Folate,  Potassium, and Provitamin A. It is a easy substitute for carbohydrates.

I have tried to use zucchini in parathas, seeing its nutritious values because kids just refuse to eat it raw or in any other form. Added garlic and green onion for a mouthwatering flavour and taking this paratha to just another level.
