Paratha is an Indian flatbread that's a staple in many Indian households and is popular all across the country. It is made from wheat flour and is typically pan-fried with ghee or butter. Parathas can be plain or stuffed with various fillings like potato, paneer, lentils, radish and so on. They are usually served with a side of curd, pickle, butter or a spicy curry.
