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.
