Parathas are like a lifeline in most Indian households. They come in all mixes, vegetables and varieties that we might not have heard of. The hot and flat parathas straight out of a tawa go well with any sabzi, achar, chutney and, of course, a chilled glass of lassi. While nothing beats the taste of that "maa ke haath ka paratha", we might have just found another yummier version of paratha, which you would love to taste. Over the years, parathe wali gali has garnered its reputation because of the fried parathas we get there, but did you know that Agra also has its own fame of parathas?
