The Origin of Paranthas
Paranthas are a mouthwatering version of rotis. This type of flatbread has its origins in the north of the Indian subcontinent. North Indians are very fond of paranthas in their traditional style, which are created by making the layers of dough and cooking on a griddle. Ghee or oil is also used during its preparation. To make paranthas healthier, some people also bake it in a clay oven or tandoor. However, healthy people prefer to eat them with white butter on top.
Plain and Stuffed Parantha Varieties
This unleavened Indian flatbread is cooked in several different ways, but its most common form is plain parantha prepared similar to rotis on an iron skillet. However, layering them or mixing vegetables or spices in their dough makes tastier paranthas. For stuffed paranthas, grated vegetables are added to the rolled dough and its edges are sealed to roll the stuffed dough again. This rolled flatbread is then cooked on a skillet using ghee or oil. Cooked paranthas go very well with a chutney, pickle, ketchup, curd, lentils, and even cooked vegetables and curries.
Paranthas are prepared in many styles and geometrical shapes. They not only look appealing, but also taste delicious. While rotis serve as an accompaniment to your dishes, paranthas do the same and can even be eaten as snacks over tea or consumed on their own with just pickle or curd. Stuffed hot paranthas are the choice of millions of people, especially during the rainy or cold season when they long for something crispy and tasty. However, many people have plain or carom seeds paranthas for their daily breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
