The Bidari Paratha is a unique treat that will make you feel special the moment you bite into one!
It has a very interesting, flaky texture achieved by a dough that combines the perfect proportions of refined flour, wheat flour and semolina. There is a special way of rolling this parantha, which you can master by following the recipe instructions and practicing a little bit.
A lot of ghee is used while rolling the parantha, and this is very important to get the flaky texture. Make your Sunday lunch very special, by serving Bidari Parantha with tongue-tickling gravies and curries.
