Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, nothing is apter than this saying for the paranthas. Be it a Parantha, Paranta, flatbread or Indian pancakes, this flaky layered and stuffed goodness is the answer to all the cravings. Divided by cuisines but united by Paranthas, as India stands, each region has its own different version of paranthas. It is a sumptuous and wholesome dish that can be eaten at any point of time; be it breakfast - chomp on some stuffed Aalo Paranthas, lunch where one can have crispy flaky Paranthas with a Subzi or an on-the-go-roll-it-and-eat-it snack. Here is a list of parantha-serving-restaurants in Delhi NCR where you can witness the greatness of this comfort food.
From celebrities and national leaders like former Prime Ministers Jawaharlal Nehru and Lal Bahadur Shastri to the common man of Delhi, this is a haven for parantha lovers. Set in a narrow and nostalgic winding lane off the main street of Chandni Chowk, this eatery has origins that date back to the days of legendary Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. The paranthas here are deep-fried and has a crisp outer layer with a soft and piping hot filling - a pure bliss. They have a huge variety of fillings that go into the paranthas; some of the sumptuous fillings that are worth a shot are Mooli, Besan Aloo Dal Special, Almond, Mint and Green Chilli.
Nestled in the spice market in Khari Baoli, it is known for its naan-like-stuffed paranthas. Given the fact that it is in Old Delhi’s busiest place, you might want to ignore the space factor as one has to squeeze in to get a seat. These paranthas are cooked in tandoor and owing to its healthier cooking technique, they are lighter and a guilt-free snacking component. These paranthas are served with a portion of a curry, a chutney, pickle and salad. The star casts amongst them are Cheese, Hariyali Paneer and Aloo Pyaz.
Risen above from the street-side parantha vendors, Moolchand Parantha is a place for overwhelming paranthas. This circular happiness is served with their trademark fried green chillies, chaat masala and raita. To finish it off, a steaming cup of chai would do wonders. It is a perfect hangout place for students bored of late night studying or youngsters wanting a refuel after the party. Some of the delicious offerings include Egg Parantha, Keema Parantha served with a gravy and Chilly Garlic Parantha.
Diners will be spoilt for choice at More Than Parathas, which offers over 100 types of its signature flatbreads. It serves the purpose of a rustic enjoyment where hands getting oily is rather an accomplishment for them. True to its name, they serve a wide variety of curries, kebabs and tikkas too. Choosing from this huge menu is a difficult task, but still one can always go for their Chana Dal Pyaz Lehsuni Parantha and Gobhi Aur Ande Ka Parantha. Innovation at its best, they also have Pocket Paranthas - pocket shaped paranthas stuffed with whole kebabs and Chur Chur Parantha - a crumbly and flaky flatbread given a shake-up with hands.
A deviant from the hegemony of the North Indian style paranthas, this Bengali-intensive area has its own variety of paranthas known as Mughlai Parantha. Stuffed with eggs and minced meat of chicken or mutton and some veggies, these thinly crusted paranthas are sure to take you to food heaven. It is one of its kind paranthas and is a popular snack during Durga Puja. Apart from this, this place also serves biryanis, gravies and Rumali Rolls.
