Paratha is a recipe with a combination of wheat flour along with the choice of vegetables made into flat circular breads. Of all the common varieties, the paratha made from sweet potato is also one. Considering fiber content, complex carbohydrates, protein, vitamins A and C, B6, iron, and calcium, the sweet potato ranked highest in nutritional value. Sweet potato varieties with dark orange flesh have more beta carotene than those with light colored flesh and their increased cultivation is being encouraged in Africa where Vitamin A deficiency is a serious health problem. Despite the name "sweet", it may be a beneficial food for diabetics., as preliminary studies on animals have revealed that it helps to stabilize blood sugar levels and to lower insulin resistance.
