This is a really delicious paratha made of figs, khoya and sugar! The figs and khoya complement each other beautifully in flavour. Every bite of this paratha will be truly memorable.
Figs are high in potassium, iron, fibre and calcium. They are an excellent remedy for Piles. They also give comfort to people suffering from Asthma.
Khoya (mava) being a dairy product promotes strong bones by being a very good source of vitamin D and calcium, it is also a good source of vitamin B12, which is necessary for cardiovascular health and energy production. Consuming khoya decreases the risk of osteoporosis.
