Sweet paratha with coconut filling – easy indian dessert recipe

I made this sweet parathas just for the blog events going on now. I came up with the idea after some googling and putting together 3 events . But whatever, my hubby just loved them. He was a bit disappointed as I had made only a few parathas. But wanted me to make this one frequently.
