One can make theplas with wheat flour, jowar flour, besan, rice flour, and bajri flours with combinations of diffrent vegetables, It goes perfect with gravys and curries. They are perfect for breakfast too. This recipe is very similar to my Hariyali parathas but jowar flour with yogurt make them super soft and very tasty.
