Parath Parantha - 16 Layered Paratha

Parath Parantha - this paratha is quite famous in Delhi especially from Prathen Wali Gali in Chandni Chowk, Delhi. Parath means layers, hence this paratha is named as Parath Parantha. These parathas can be made in any size with different shapes, though i sticked with a square shaped one. The best part of this paratha is the spice mix used in making layers.This paratha have 16 layers, once rolled the dough, a spice mix with chilly powder, cumin powder, garam masala and chaat masala is spread over the rolled dough and cut it as 16 pieces. Once stacked, this paratha is rolled either as round or square shaped paratha.

You doesnt need any side dish to serve along with these paratha, though we liked it with a simple aloo curry. I bookmarked this parath parantha from Gayathri's Space long back, finally i prepared this layered paratha at home few days back. Trust me this paratha is definitely worth to try and the layers came out extremely prefect.
