India is a diverse nation. We have read this in our school books, right?
But, in those pages, there was unsaid yet the loudest quality of our beautiful nation. India is the king of taste. Diverse regions mean diverse cuisines. If you are an Indian, you know the variety of cuisines we find throughout the nation. With Delhi, the craving starts for Chhole Bhature, and with Mumbai, we just want to munch on some hot Vada Pavs. If you want to talk about Gujarat, I suggest bringing some Khakhras to bite on while we talk. That’s the magic of India.
But, let’s explore a dish that doubles the joy of having a wholesome meal. The dish that has a forever companion that looks (and, of course, tastes) magically delicious. Yes, that versatile dish that completes you as well as your meal. Yup! We are talking about Indian breads.
So, it’s time to put down your fork and spoon and roll up your sleeves. Things are about to get tastier!
In this blog, we’ll take you through some undeniably supreme types of Indian breads that are common yet loved by millions. Let’s start with this:
1 Chapati: Chapatis are flatbreads made from wheat flour. The dough is flattened by hands and then baked on Tawa with oil, ghee, or butter. Chapatis are often enjoyed with spicy veggies or stew. But, let me get this straight. If you’re looking to add some joy to your breakfast, try this: Roll a chapatti, dip it in a cup of hot tea, enjoy bite by bite, and yes, don’t forget to thank me later!
2 Paratha: Hey, are you Punjabi? I have a request. If you liked this blog, can you invite me for a paratha party at your place? Lassi on the side would be great! Thanks ;) So parathas are layered flatbread made of wheat flour and stuffed with vegetables, too. You know, what’s the best thing to see in this world?
Seeing a tiny cube of butter melting on your paratha! Agreed?
Let me write some magic spells; Aloo Paratha, Gobhi Paratha, Paneer Paratha, want more?
Step into this awesome restaurant in Vashi: Combo Jumbo. Experience the magic of Indian Cuisines.
Master Tip: Enjoy parathas with Chutneys and yogurt; you’ll remember me for a lifetime!
3 Naan: Naan is another famous and beloved Indian bread made in tandoor. Naan is known to complete a celebration. A buffet counter without Naan will always be incomplete (and sort of boring). Palak Paneer, Veg Kolhapuri, and spicy gravies are enjoyed with Naan. Don’t forget about butter. It’s good if you can tweak up your festive mood!
4 Puri: Puri is also made of wheat flour, which, when it hits the oil, inflates into a golden puff. It is palm-sized and enjoyed with Indian gravies and veggies. If you are reading this blog in summer, puri and aam ras will bring the joy of heaven to your heart. But, no worries, if summer is far away, shrikhand or aamrakhand will do the same magic!
5 Bhatura: Just like Puri, Bhatura is deep-fried in oil. Bhatura has to be on your plate if you are in the mood to have a heavy and wholesome meal! Made of Maida and famously accompanied by Chhole, Bhatura is more of an emotion. Chhole Bhature has a separate fan base in India and, I’m sure, across the globe, too.
So, here were some of the best Indian breads that will surely make your heart go WOOOOOOWWWW!!!
I hope you enjoyed reading this blog as much as I enjoyed writing it. Food is indeed a celebration, which goes in the tummy, and feels in the heart.
To end this, I’d like to say that don’t ever end this celebration. India has a variety of cuisines that is worth exploring. So, keep trying new dishes!
