This paratha recipe is the ideal side to accompany your curries. The traditional paratha recipe I use is by far my favourite.
Simple flatbreads called parathas are made using wheat flour and a few additional basic ingredients.
There are several different types of flatbreads that are popular throughout South Asia, ranging from puffy, deep-fried bhatura to chewy, whole wheat roti.
Flaky, buttery flatbreads called parathas can be eaten with curries, folded up and dipped into hot chai, or turned into a meal on its own with raita on the side for dipping.
You can make them basic or load them with anything, such as a spiced potato filling or minced meat.
Whole wheat flour is used to make parathas, which are then rolled out and cooked on a griddle with ghee, butter, or oil.
For breakfast, they are relished with pickles and a steaming cup of chai, and for lunch or dinner, they are served with curries and yoghurt raita.
If you are not in the mood for buttery parathas then you can make simple chapattis.
Particularly for young children, parathas are excellent to pack in a tiffin for lunch. They stay soft longer.
For my kids, I normally slice the paratha into eight pieces like a pizza. This makes it simple for my kids to eat parathas as finger food during lunch or break.
They even taste great when served alone or with a cup of tea. Since I can remember, paratha has been a mainstay in my family’s cuisine.
