Breakfast, India Style

During her stay with Varun and I the past few days, Varun’s mom made us lots of tasty Indian food. Apparently our smoke detector does not like Indian food, so it spent a lot of time under a pile of blankets. Meanwhile, Varun and I feasted on daal, parantha, mutter paneer and fancy rice, pilau.

While I love almost every dish the Subcontinent has to offer, parantha is like a breakfast dream come true. Varun’s Mom was kind enough to make me my favorite, aloo ka parantha. This is basically rolled out dough (flour + water), folded around a mixture of chopped onion, boiled potatoes, chilies and spices. Fry it up, slather it in butter, and enjoy with plain yogurt and achar (pickled mangoes). YUM.

Thank you, Mummyji!!!
