About Malabari Parotta Recipe: Malabari Parotta or 'Barota' is flaky yet fluffy, crisp yet soft. It is distinct from its North Indian cousin, the Lachcha Parantha and closer to its Malay counterpart, the Roti Cannai, a good Malabar Paratha is just the perfect accompaniment to chettinad cuisine when paired with coconutty curries like Chicken Chettinad and rich meaty stews. A thin parantha served hot with melted ghee, usually served with South Indian gravy dishes, this is perfect for dinner parties too!
