How to make Indian parantha bites

Recipe of Indian Paratha Bites

Paratha is an Indian flatbread cooked on tava (Indian griddle / Pan) with sprinkled oil. Paratha can be of different variety like gobi, carrot, radish, potato etc. This is a plain version of paratha with carom seeds. It is perfect for breakfast which can be served with yogurt and pickle. It is one of the most popular flat bread in northern India. It is perfect accompaniment with the cup of tea.

I have converted these paratha into quick bites topped with cooked cauliflower vegetable and served with a bowl of dal makhani. You can make these parathas in square or triangle shape. It can also be eaten with the dollop of white or yellow butter.
