How to make Hariyali Paratha

Recipe by Naiya Sheth: During this lovely season of winter it is advisable to eat more n more green vegetables. So, here it's a super delicious healthy recipe from pigeon peas. Earlier we made kachori - a very well known a mouthwatering Gujarati farsan from the same ingredient. But that was fried, so this time I made it as paratha with a little twist of fresh green garlic. The most important thing about this recipe is it is made in the microwave, so no need to observe and stir often.
