The very thought of hot parathas with dahi, achar and makkhan (white butter) is enough to make us slurp. One of the most loved dishes in the Northern part of India, parathas make for a quick and wholesome meal anytime of the day. Have it plain or stuffed, parathas can be customised as per taste and the season. While plain and light ajwain-namak paratha is preferred during the summers, the chilly winter season calls for spicy, butter-laden stuffed parathas made with various seasonal vegetables. In fact, stuffed parathas give you enough room to be creative with the filling (stuffing). For instance, some prefer making it decadent with cheese, spices and oil, others keep it healthy by adding nutritious filling to the paratha for guilt-free indulgence.
Although preferences vary from person to person, what never fails to impress every paratha-lover is a classic gobi paratha. A winter-special dish in every North Indian (especially Punjabi) house-hold, gobi paratha made with spicy grated cauliflower stuffing and oodles of ghee. Pair it with some achar and fresh makkhan – gobi paratha screams indulgence.
