Four Ways To Make The Most Crispy and Yummy Parathas

Breakfast is considered as the most important meal of the day, especially for growing kids and teenagers. A rich and healthy breakfast keeps you energized for the whole day. There is a plenty of options one can have for breakfast, from pancakes, French toasts and Spanish omelette to some traditional Pakistani options like halwa poori, channay, nihari and Parathas, etc. Parathas, being my personal favourite, are very rich in terms of their nutritional value. Honestly, a crunchy hot paratha with a cup of tea can do wonders for your mood. Today I’m going to share four fun ways to make paratha for your breakfast. Before I start let me share the recipe for paratha dough. You can use this dough to make any paratha of your choice.
