|Mooli ke Parathe/ Raddish Paratha Indian Flat Bread|
“Roti khayenge?” Which will translate to,” will you have food? ”
Diversity is what India is all about not only in regions, languages but also in food. But this is a question you will definitely hear in North India! People will welcome you to join them for a meal.
Everyday food in India has good health packed in its ingredients and is a complete meal by itself. You will have proteins, carbohydrates, fats and vitamins minerals and water when you have an Indian meal especially when you have a home cooked Indian meal.
I have already written about Indian flatbreads. Interested?
In my place we have chapatti every day; rice is made only on demand. I prefer to make paratha to chapattis.
Mostly I make the kinds in which the flour is mixed with the vegetables or dal.
The girls of course prefer the aloo paratha! The complaint is mooli paratha or methi paratha?? And they dig in.

- Heat a non-stick tava/skillet and cook each paratha, using ¼ tsp of oil, till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides.
