North Indian Paratha for Breakfast


We got to our first meeting a bit early today, so we parked ourselves at a cafeteria downstairs for a quick breakfast. When I asked my colleague for a typical local breakfast, he suggested idli, which struck me as a bit odd given that they were more of a South Indian thing. Since we were in Delhi though, I told him that I wanted something from the north, to which he suggested a paratha.

Not to be confused with a Singaporean roti prata, this was a thick and greasy thing folded over and stuffed with things like potatoes (I think it was just a coincidence that it was laid out like a happy face with that curry and yogurt on a yellow plate). It was good, but I prefer the much lighter and fluffier idli.
