In this Summer Season Moongdal Paratha and Aamras is the best combo to have. Easy to make and very tasty to taste buds too.
A humble food which is liked by all elders and small ones.Summers are the season of Mangoes anyways. There are various combos with Mango juice like, dal-rice-aamras, puri-aamras and many more. All have their own unique taste to enjoy in summers.
If you get bored with veggies in summer, which we generally do then this combo is really a saviour to have. Not too much preparation required and fulfilling too.
