About Sunday’s & Quick Easy Breakfasts

Onion Parantha A Parantha is a versatile Indian bread which is made by rolling out small portions of dough and then cooking on a hot plate/griddle. While it is primarily made out of whole wheat flour,other flours such as gram,refined,etc can be added. Parantha’s can either be stuffed or plain and can have a variety of fillings such as cottage cheese,potato,or even chicken and mutton. They can either be griddle cooked or deep fried and can be served with a huge number of accompaniments like curd,pickle ,butter,etc.

Sunday mornings are supposed to be fun,not energetic but relaxed and definitely worth doing what you love to do the most. For me today it was just to have a simple onion parantha with some pickle.

In a hot summer weather nothing can cool you down and prepare you hot the scorching heat than what good a onion can do.WAAIITTT!! … I’m not telling you to eat a raw onion…that’s just bad..
