Paratha recipe - exotic, spicy, diverse!

As a hearty breakfast, pastries with tea, filled main course or sweet dessert: the Indian flatbread Paratha promises varied enjoyment. Our basic Paratha recipe is very suitable for serving the thin bread as a side dish - for example with Indian chicken fillet. In contrast to the popular Naan flatbread, Paratha consists of wholemeal flour and is not baked in the oven, but with oil or ghee in a pan. Another flatbread specialties from India include chapati, also known as roti. This bread traditionally consists of the durum wheat flour Atta. What all flatbreads have in common is their high status as a staple food that is served with all meals. Have an Indian breakfast and try fresh parathas with the yoghurt dish Raita. At lunchtime or in the evening, flatbread is recommended as a side dish for dishes with lentils, dhal or chicken tikka masala.

Tips: In our Indian recipes you will find many more great dishes to cook at home. For dessert you can enjoy Paratha if you simply sprinkle sugar over the bread or eat it with fruit pulp or fruit. Shaped into a roll, parathas can be dipped in sweet chai tea.

Stuffed paratha: recipes for every taste

Parathas filled with potatoes, vegetables, eggs, meat or cheese make a filling main course. For "Paratha Aloo" you prepare a mixture of floury, mashed potatoes and spices and wrap this in the Paratha batter, which you then bake flat. The flatbreads also taste delicious when filled with rose or cauliflower, spinach, tomatoes, legumes, minced meat or cheese. The filling compound can also be kneaded directly with the Paratha dough. You are welcome to experiment with this and prepare the flatbreads with spelled, rye and flour mixtures. If you are on a gluten-free diet, roasted lentil flour is also ideal for a Paratha recipe. It is also very rich in protein and suitable for a low-carb diet. But you can also use our recipe for Cloud Bread. It works entirely without flour.

Tip: Our recipe for Indian potatoes provides more ideas for seasoning the filling.
