Aloo parathas or flatbreads stuffed with a mashed potato filling are ubiquitous favourites across the country. Predominantly popular in Punjabi households as winter breakfast, it is flavoured with a dash of jeera and slow-roasted on an iron tawa with an ample amount of desi ghee.
While delicious on its own merit, what if we tell you that aloo parathas can be turned into bite-sized nachos? Recently, Chef Ranveer Brar took to Instagram to share a post on this unique medley of east meets west!
