In north India as soon as red carrots hit the market we buy them in bulk making carrot halwa, carrot kheer, gajar ka paratha. Even with simple butter, these gajar parathas taste heavenly. Serve them hot with curd or pickle and if you can indulge a bit then add a dollop of butter. Kids love these parathas due to a little sweetness coming from carrot. I especially add chopped green chili (not spicy one) and chili flakes which taste superb in these parathas.
