Paratha are unleavened layered flatbreads made
with whole wheat flour (atta), salt, water ghee
or oil. These traditional flatbreads are a staple
in Indian subcontinent and are served for a
breakfast with a side of curd, chutney, pickle,
curries, eggs and meat dishes. To make
parathas, first a soft and pliable wheat flour
dough is made. Later portions of this is rolled
to a layer, over which ghee is smeared and folded
several times to make a triangle or square base.
This is then rolled to get several thin layers
lastly this is roasted on a griddle until golden
and cooked through.

During the process of roasting, steam traps in
between the layers which help to cook the dough
well resulting in multiple soft layers of
paratha. A generous amount of ghee is then
drizzled to impart a nutty aroma and flaky crisp
texture to the paratha. Basically these are of
2 kinds plain or layered parathas and stuffed
parathas. The plain parathas are made the way I
mentioned above. Stuffed parathas are made with a
stuffing of veggies, eggs or meat inside the
dough. Aloo parathas are one of the popular
stuffed kind.

The plain layered parathas can also be further
flavored by adding various spices, pureed
spinach, boiled vegetables, mashed paneer or
chopped leafy greens. For more details you may
check the variations section below. The beauty
of these parathas is that they are easy to make
and requires no special skills like the stuffed
parathas. These can also be made ahead and stored
in the refrigerator for several days or even
frozen.

These make for a great breakfast with some egg
bhurji or paneer bhurji. They also go well in the
school and office lunch box. Here are some
curries that go well with these parathas.Dal
