The Perfect Holiday Breakfast

Are you looking for something delicious to make this holiday season? Try making parathas and omelettes! 

For those of you who don’t know, parathas are a South Asian flatbread that are flaky, crispy, chewy, and buttery. They remind me of croissants, without the fluff. They can be paired with eggs, curries, or kabobs. 

I followed Serious Eats recipe! 

Yield: 8

Ingredients 

  • 3 cups of all-purpose flour 
  • 1 tsp of salt 
  • 2-3 tbsp of vegetable oil 
  • 1 cup of warm water. 
  • ¼- ½ cup of ghee, butter, or margarine (vegan option: Vegan Becel)

Directions 

  • Combine 3 cups of flour with 1 tsp of salt. Then knead in the oil. After this, add 1 cup of warm water. 
  • Roll out the dough into a round ball and chop it into 8 portions. 
  • Roll out each portion, add your desired amount of ghee (or substitute). Spread it on as you would for a piece of toast. Sprinkle a little flour on top. 
  • Next, roll the dough into a linear structure. 
  • After this, take each side of the dough and roll them towards each other.
  • Combine them on top of each other and flatten them. Let them sit for another hour. 
  • Finally, roll out each portion. Using medium heat and a small amount of oil, add paratha to a frying pan. Cook until they are golden brown.

Here is a slideshow of the process.

 

For this recipe, don’t be scared to use too much oil. The oil is what makes them flaky! I suggest using vegetable oil, such as canola oil, and using a solid spread such as Vegan Becel.

I paired this with an omelette.

For the omelette, I combined the following: 

  • Whole eggs 
  • Green chillies
  • Onions
  • Bell peppers 
  • Tomatoes
  • Cilantro
  • S & P
  • Turmeric 
  • Cumin
  • Red chilli powder 

Enjoy!

Happy Holidays!
