How to make Meetha Parantha? Sweet Indian flatbread recipe

Indian flatbread- Parantha stuffed with dry fruit

Meetha Paratha is a sweet Indian flatbread stuffed with cashews, blanched almonds, pecans, raisins etc (basically any dry fruit of your choice.) It is one of my favourite flatbreads especially because so many of my childhood memories are associated with it. As a kid, sometimes when I would be upset my mom prepared this tasty paratha for me because she knew I loved it. Now, I make it for my little ones and they enjoy it too.
