Are you looking for recipes for dip/chutney for paratha to serve with? Here is the post that covers a variety of dip and chutney recipes for parathas to enjoy like never before.
Parathas are an integral part of Indian cuisine. In North India, the morning is incomplete in every household without this must-have breakfast meal. Usually, the paratha base is prepared with whole wheat flour, then rolled as either plain flatbread or stuffed flatbread and fried on a skillet. To make stuffed paratha, we need filling that can be anything like aloo (potato), paneer (cottage cheese), mooli (reddish), gobi (cauliflower), carrot, onion, spinach, or mixed veggies, etc. One can fill as many as the stuff they want.
But what truly takes parathas to another level is the addition of flavorful chutney or dip. Dips/chutneys are versatile condiments that transform a simple paratha into a gourmet experience.
In this post, I will cover a collection of unique chutney and dip ideas you can serve with parathas ranging from the versatile green chutney, the hero mango chutney, and the creamy coconut chutney to cheesy Haydari maze, a delicious Turkish dip and all-time favourite cucumber raita, etc., elevating every bite of paratha with their explosive and irresistible flavours.
