Both are made with whole wheat flour, so what is the big difference between roti and paratha? Well, try this simple Paratha recipe to experience the difference.

Although made with pretty much the same ingredients, the style of rolling, the method of cooking and the medium of cooking (with or without oil) vary, creating a world of difference in everything from the flavour to the texture.

Serve with your favourite Subzis / Curries .
