Turkey Paratha Roll: A Delicious Twist to a Forever Favorite

We have all enjoyed paratha roll in many forms: as street food, a quick lunch or as Ammie’s solution when we are bored of plain old dinner. But have you ever tried a turkey paratha roll? It’s just as delicious plus super healthy! Why not have a ‘Make Your Own Turkey Paratha Roll” party?
