Aloo paratha is the most popular amongst all the paratha’s! A paratha is an unleavened flatbread stuffed with a variety of filling from vegetarian to non-vegetarian. Some of the popular paratha’s are gobhi paratha, aloo matar paratha, paneer paratha, methi paratha amongst the veg ones, and kheema paratha and egg parathas amongst the non-vegetarian counterparts. A typical Punjabi paratha is made with loads of ghee and served with a dollop of homemade butter. Definitely not the healthiest, but people back then did a lot of manual labor and so needed all the extra calories. With today’s sedentary lifestyle eating such a calorie-laden meal every day will definitely do you no good, so moderation is definitely the key.
Kulcha, a leavened flatbread, has its origins in North India, in Amritsar to be specific. It is basically made with maida (all purpose flour), yogurt, leavening agents and baked in a tandoor.There isn’t much difference between naan & kulcha, except for the leavening agents involved in their respective recipes. Kulchas are mostly stuffed from a gamut of fillings, potato (the most popular one, known as aloo kulcha) to onions to paneer etc.
