In India, bread is eaten more in the northern regions of the country because of its dry climate. There is a variety of bread consumed in India like roti, naan, and paratha. Indian roti is flat and cooked on a tava or cast-iron griddle. It can also be cooked in a tandoor.
Roti is thin and made of atta (wholewheat). The naan is soft and fluffy and is made from plain flour with a little bit of yeast. Parathas are layered bread made of wheat flour but fried in little oil. The bread is prepared according to one’s own taste and imagination. That is why in India we have a variety of bread like the plain naan, garlic naan, methi roti, aloo paratha, puri, bhature etc.
Similarly, you can form various form of Parathan by varying the content used to fill in the paratha.
- Use egg mixture to fill into the paratha and form Egg Paratha
- Using grated gobhi makes Gobhi Paratha
- Using matar as the filling makes Matar Paratha
- Using methi as the filling makes Methi Paratha
- Using palak as the filling makes Palak Paratha
