I love parathas with or without any vegetable side dish too. Paratha is a North India speciality. There are so many different types of Parathas you can make. They are either stuffed or plain. Today, I’m here with the recipe of Garlic Paratha. It is very easy to prepare and makes a delicious way to begin the day. It is prepared with fresh and crushed garlic along with other flavorful spices. Try this divine recipe at your home and I am sure this healthy food brings a big smile on your face..:)
