Indian cuisine is incomplete without its bread- which is in many forms. Chapati, Puri, Parathas and more. There are mind-boggling varieties of Puri and Paranthas.
Paranthas are savored all over India as a major breakfast option and whenever the hunger pangs strike. Talking about the variations there are simply so many. The staple favorites are Aloo Parantha, Gobhi Parantha, Mooli Parantha, and Mix Vegetable Parantha. I mean one can write an encyclopedia on various types of paranthas based on stuffing (vegetables, fruits or simply spice mix), kind of flour used and techniques!
