Paratha is one variety of Indian flat bread, most popular in Northern part of India. It can be made plain or stuffed. But stuffed parathas taste better, doesn't even need a side, a great meal in itself with a dash of ghee or butter spread on it. There are like dozen stuffing ideas, here's one from my kitchen.
A great street side food famous in Tamil Nadu and Kerala. Flaky, fluffy, soft circular breads made with plain flour or Maida. First of all, this item literally takes a bath in oil, so people who are health consicous better avoid making this dish. The other thing is , it takes atleast a couple hours to make these parottas, most of which is kneading the dough, beating and shaping.
