A trip to Pakistan is officially incomplete if you haven’t had a traditional Pakistani breakfast. It could be the quintessential roadside Halwa Puri or a more simple home made chaai (strongly brewed milky tea) and paratha (thick rolled flat bread). But when you are looking for a bit more grandeur in your breakfast, Aloo Ka Paratha is a quite a sensual delight. Two thinly roughly rolled parathas stuffed with a spicy potato and onion mix , roasted to a light crisp on a flat griddle with a generous spread of oil on both sides. Eaten warm with a dollop of yogurt and home-made mango pickle.

Indeed, its best to forget the word “calories” when you visit Pakistan. 

Yum !
