Soya Kheema Paratha / Soya Chunks Stuffed Paratha

Another way to sneak the soya chunks aka meal maker is,making a stuffing or filling for paratha(flat bread ) or sandwich.

I always use some veggies like cauliflower or broccoli along with the soya chunks to make the filling.This way vegetable can also be included in the diet.

If you are using soy granules then no need to pulse it,you can use it according to the package instructions.But here I used the regular soya chunks and mince it and used.
