5 Quirky Paratha Recipes For Desi And Delicious Breakfast:
1. Keema Paratha
Whole wheat flat-bread filled with juicy and spicy mutton keema, roasted on a girdle. We believe there cannot be a better start to the day. Make sure you are not stingy with the filling there. Nobody is a fan of sparse stuffing. Pair it with raita or pickle and gobble away.
The distinct taste of garlic makes it a hit across globe. We love the way it uplifts our gravies and rice dishes. Mix it with maida, yogurt, desi ghee and you have an excellent base for parathas too! You can pair it with a variety of accompaniments. Here are some ideas.
Got some left-over barfi at home. Don't know what to do with them? Try making parathas! No kidding. Barfi makes for an excellent sweet-filling for your stuffed parathas. If you are a fan of halwa paratha, we are sure you'll like this too!
4. Anda Paratha
How do you spruce anything bland? We know we try to liven it up with eggs. If you identify an anda lover too, you must try this classic recipe. It makes a divine combination with mango chutney, pudina chutney and pickles.
This is one of the best ways to make your kids eat some vegetables. The fussy-eaters can get hard to please at times, but that does not mean you cannot think of smart ways to get the job done. This loaded paratha recipe is sure to fill you up with all things, delish and healthy.
