Ajwain Paratha | Carom Seeds Paratha | Caraway Seeds Paratha

Ajwain Paratha somehow its very familiar with every one I think. A strong aroma of ajwain paratha,easily digestive and tasty too. In my childhood my mom very often made this paratha and we were just fond of it.- "Mom now I am preparing too." Someday when i am feeling very lazy to do anything specially cooking , serving this paratha with little mixed pickle and that's all. My family is very happy with this combo. And its really easy to prepare also.

Specifically nutrition value about ajwain is many more. It helps to increase the digestive function and ajwain contains an essential oil name Thymol which is very useful in local anesthetic, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. Ajwain seeds are rich in anti-oxident ,vitamin,minerals and fibre too. Source
