Indian flat breads are some of the best breads in the world and the sheer variety of them ensures you can have something different every time. They are a staple in most Indian families and every family has their favourite. Roti/Chappatis are for everyday meals, parathas with potato or cauliflower stuffing make a good breakfast, puris are for festivals and the list goes on.
Parathas are a generic term for thicker breads usually made of wholemeal flour, the breads are griddled on a skillet and usually have a smear of oil or ghee to add to the deliciousness. Different flours like millet and maize are also used to make flat breads. So you can imagine the variety is endless.
Pudina means mint in Hindi, and mint is used to give flavour to the dough.These parathas are multi layered, the technique used to make them ensures this. This makes them flaky and gives a nice texture. I have tried to explain the technique step by step so that it's easy to follow. I hope you enjoy these multi layered mint scented breads :-)
