Options for a healthier version:

You could avoid frying paratha made any of the 3 ways.

You could avoid applying oil inside the paratha.

You could make paratha without frying with oil, and serve with a dash of oil/ghee smeared on the paratha after removing from the tawa.

If using method 2, you could take a small ball of dough and a heavier stuffing without any problem rolling it.
