A wholesome Indian meal is just incomplete without its bread. We love having different kinds of bread with a variety of curries, gravies or even tikkas. In fact, each region in India has different kinds of bread. For instance, North Indians are crazy about laccha paratha, kulcha and naan. Similarly, South Indian cuisine is famous for Malabar Paratha/Parotta. The flaky, soft, and layered parotta is a versatile bread that goes well with almost any curry (including butter chicken!). There are, however, some classic South Indian curries that provide an authentic South Indian meal experience. Given this, we've compiled a list of South Indian curries that pair well with this paratha. Read below to know about them.
Here're 5 South Indian Curries That Can Be Paired Well With Parotta; Take A Look
