What is Achari paratha?

Shallow fried Indian flatbread bursting with flavors of mustard seeds, fennel seeds, onion seeds and many more is achari paratha. Achaar is a very accompaniment of Indian food. Anything boring can be pepped up and for many foodies, it is an indispensable part of their meal thali. Achaar offers a bunch of flavors. Those flavors have been absorbed by this paratha.  It can be served for breakfast or lunch or dinner with any gravy, dal or side dish. Just roll and pack these parathas for travel and be sorted.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Achari Paratha Recipe

Achari paratha calls for 2 main ingredients 1. Perfect dough for paratha and 2. Flavorful achari spice mix. Both these recipes are already on the blog. Further, you can use ghee or oil to fry the paratha. I have used oil.  You can fold the paratha using the technique that you follow or do it as explained in the recipe. There is no salt in my achari masala recipe as each recipe made using achari masala has its own salt requirements. Therefore, don’t miss out the salt.

I am a Punjabi by birth. So obviously my blog has a collection of paratha recipes. It has stuffed parathas, simple parathas for dals/gravies, etc and more. You can find the collection here.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
