Sanjori - Rava Sheera Paratha - Sweet Paratha - Semolina Pudding Stuffed Indian Flabread

Sanjori is a Sweet Paratha (Indian flatbread) that is stuffed with Rava Sheera (Semolina Pudding). Its a Popular Maharashtrian dish and is similar to our regular paratha, the only difference is that of stuffing which is sweet as opposed to the savory kind.  It can be served for breakfast or as a snack with some Ghee applied on it. This recipe is definitely not for those watching their weight but having said that once in a while a small portion definitely doesn't hurt :)
