Parathas are most important part of the Indian Cuisine. It's a flat bread, made with wheat flour, maida, and/or gram flour etc. Aloo paratha and Gobi paratha are the most famous of them all, not only in India but all over in the world. Paratha can be served as breakfast, lunch and dinner as well.
For the paratha filling, one can use any king a vegetables, spices, meats, and even fruits. I am not kidding, there is a shop in my home town which is famous for their fruit paratha.
Paneer Chilli is very famous Indo-Chinese dish, I love the spicyness of this dish. In this paratha, the filling has to be extra spicy, because flour will mellow down the spicyness little bit. Another thing to be careful and reason for these to be mini paratha is that when bell peppers are grated, they excrete some water, which in turn will make filling a little loose so smaller the paratha, it will be easier to keep it bound and rolled.

I have received this 'Inspiration award ' from my dear friends Pravs, and Sailaja. I really appreciate this lovely award, I am blushing :))) Thanks a ton.
This 'Inspiration award ' started by Jamie of Flavor Pantry. Thank You so much Jamie for starting this lovely "Inspiration Award", like others Jamie also inspired by bloggers recipes, photos, and awesome posts.
This award is given to bloggers whose stories and recipes inspire us. Whether it’s to eat healthier, dive back into our past to conjure up something we ate as children, or just make the light bulbs in our brains go on with a new idea for a recipe."
As recipients of this award, please share with us what inspires you and then pass on the Inspiration Award to 4 other deserving bloggers. Please let them know what the award means and what to do with it.
I am inspired by:-
1. I am inspired by my mom who didn't even know how to make plain rotis when she got married, and in within a year, she was a awesome cook who knew many recipes from all over the world.
2. I am inspired by my dear hubby. He is very practical and always thinks logically. He enjoys each moment of life to the fullest, very calm person, always teaches and urges me how to be calm in any situation. Love ya.
3. I am inspired by Giada De Laurentiis. She had a chance to become an actress and she chose to become a chef and to become the one like her, best of the best, is very inspiring for me. If she wanted to become actress, it would have been easy from because of her family's film background but she chose harder path of becoming a chef and she did it very successfully.
