Malai Ka Paratha

My final recipe for this week is a Paratha recipe inspired by Panjabi cuisine. At home, we like to have phulkas for dinner with the same curry we have for lunch. This is the regular menu for our dinner. Very often I make a different curry for dinner, Idli and dosa will be there for dinner for only Thursday and Saturday. Like this special Parathas I usually make for Sunday brunch or even for breakfast.
                                                            This Malai Parathas My grandmother used to make for my grandfather with chicken kurma. I didn't have any Idea from where she picked this recipe. But now eating parathas with lots of malai and is impossible. My grandfather use to have these malai paratha with a good portion of chicken curry. But now we think about the extra workout before eating even plain parathas. 
                                                                  Yesterday I made this parathas for lunch and skipped our dinner and went for a extra walk. I am a person like eating well and go for a good brisk walk and do yoga. I don't want to keep any rolls and restrictions on my food. Any way, that's my choice, but do try this Malai Parathas you will enjoy them for sure...

That is definitely a very rich and decadent looking paratha. I love your policy of going for an extra mile walk after a heavy meal :-)
