Rotis / Puris / Parathas recipes
Last Updated : Sep 30,2018
A variety of tasty flat breads are made in India, to be served as part of lunch or dinner, and sometimes as breakfast too. A roti is cooked on a tava or on an open flame, while a puri is deep-fried. On the other hand, a paratha is a category of Indian bread that is stuffed or spiced-up. Across the country, each community has its favourite type of flat bread and indigenous ways of making them. Rotis, puris and parathas are usually had with subzis and dals or with accompaniments like curds and pickles. Take your pick from the vast range of recipes in this section, which include puris like the Aloo Ki Puri, Baked Puri, Beetroot Puri, and Bhatura that is had with Chole, parathas like the Cheese Paratha, Aloo Methi Paratha, Dal Paratha and Gobi Paratha, as well as rotis like the Garlic Roti, Bhakri and Coriander Roti.
