Paratha is shallow fried Indian flat bread. Paratha recipes can be for stuffed or plain parathas. Plain parathas are generally served with dals or curries; whereas stuffed parathas are served with yogurt, raita or chutney. Paratha is very common especially in North India. The reason of popularity is that

  • Parathas are comfort food for many as most of the recipes are easy paratha recipes. You may not be in a mood to cook any fancy gravy or complicated dal, just make simple curry and serve with the paratha of your choice and be sorted.
  • Apart from that paratha is a very good option for kids’ tiffin. In fact all my life I have taken parathas to school. They are healthy, filling and quick to prepare.
  • Parathas have better shelf life so they are prepared for travels etc. These can be conveniently rolls and served. Indian paratha recipes are followed as much as poori recipes when it comes to travel.
  • These allow a lot of customisation. With whatever you have in hand parathas can be prepared. Even if there are no fresh ingredients, spices can be used to make parathas. In absence of spices, you should just know how to make plain paratha and you will be done.
  • Parathas are an excellent way to use leftover dry dishes, rice, khichadi etc. Just add to the dough or stuff inside and you are good to go.

Therefore we have a collection of Indian paratha recipes and the same shall be updated frequently. So stayed tuned!!

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!.
