Aloo paratha is the most popular amongst all the paratha’s! A paratha is an unleavened flatbread stuffed with a variety of filling from vegetarian to non vegetarian. Some of the popular paratha’s are gobhi paratha, aloo matar paratha, paneer paratha, methi paratha amongst the veg ones, and kheema paratha and egg parathas amongst the non vegetarian counterparts. A typical Punjabi paratha is made with loads of ghee and served with a dollop of home made butter. Definitely not the healthiest, but people back then did a lot of manual labor and so needed all the extra calories. With today’s sedentary lifestyle eating such a calorie laden meal everyday will definitely do you no good, so moderation is definitely the key.
Kulcha, a leavened flatbread, has its origins in North India, in Amritsar to be specific. It is basically made with maida (all purpose flour), yogurt, leavening agents and baked in a tandoor.There isn’t much difference between naan & kulcha, except for the leavening agents involved in their respective recipes. Kulchas are mostly stuffed from a gamut of fillings, potato (the most popular one, known as aloo kulcha) to onions to paneer etc.
