Sia said...

LOVE parathas!!! awesome the way ur paratha ahs puffed up!!! oohh! wish u stayed close by, i'd come right away and grab them!!!!

KitchenAromas said...

I want to roll up one of those parathas and gobble it up!

They look absolutely amazing. When I make any stuffed parathas, the stuffing doesn't seem to get distributed evenly! So I roll two layers separately and make a sandwich with the stuffing and roll it out

Cynthia said...

I LOVE aloo parathas and yours looks do darn good :)

trupti said...

Nice!!!! Maney toh aa lasan ni chutney saathey baahuj bhave!
