This recipe is generally prepared when we invite some of our close friends. The stuffing can be both vegetarian or non-vegetarian. This time I went ahead with non-veg and stuffed the parwal with yummy prawn stuffing. Children will love the prawns and under that context you can sneak in some veggies too, they won’t mind ;). As usual whatever I make has many benefits like Parwal 😉
