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.
