Sesame and Oregano Paratha

This is an effort to get more sesame seeds incorporated into our diet. There are quite a lot of benefits of eating sesame. There are quite a few traditional south indian foods that incorporated sesame. This dish has the oregano spice mix that is used in pizzas and the goodness of sesame rolled into a paratha. Anytime snack or a meal in itself if served with a bowl of dal/sabzi and curd. This is a picture when the paratha is rolled and the filling is spread. Will take a picture of the final product and publish next time.

  2. Sesame seeds - 1 tsp
