Parathas are sustaining and wholesome. Parathas served for breakfast with curds and a pickle are the staple food for most north indians. I actually came across this recipe quite accidentally while preparing a batch of pepper cheese sticks to serve with soup for dinner. I was left with a portion of the same dough, which on the following morning, I rolled out and cooked on a tava (griddle) like a paratha. The parathas surprisingly tasted much better than the soup sticks I had for dinner. So here is the recipe which you must try. These parathas taste best when they are served as soon as they are prepared.
