Achaari Ajwain Paratha | Pickle flavored Flat Bread

Share with friends and family

Parathas are a very healthy and a sought after breakfast in most Indian households. Pickle and curd are the best accompaniments for any kind of paratha ; stuffed or flavored . Today's paratha is flavored with pickle spices while kneading the dough which gives it a nice spicy as well as tangy flavor . Curd or some potato stir fry can be used as an accompaniment to complete a meal or brunch or a heavy breakfast.
These parathas can be packed for long travels or picnics as they stay fresh for 2-3 days if prepared and stored properly.
