Lauki & Carrot Paratha

Lauki & Carrot Paratha is something I came up with this weekend when I wanted to make a quick and healthy breakfast for my little daughter.
It is just impossible to feed some vegetables to the kids. Bottle gourd or lauki is one such thing for me. I have tried making it in a variety of ways, but paratha is the one that suits best for my daughter.
I try adding different vegetables along with bottle gourd to Multigrain flour and make crisp parathas for her.
