India is a land of varied cuisine and with the advent of food bloggers, more and more people are discovering hidden culinary gems in hidden corners of the country. People have discovered some interesting, albeit bizarre, food options like the one in Delhi kulhad momosfrom Indore mirchi ice cream rolland that of Ahmedabad Pakoda Oreo and king-size Thali Baahubali. One of these culinary gems is the Nagpur halwa paratha.
Mammoth paratha is served outside Baba Taj Dargah in Nagpur. Paratha is served chilled with suji and besan halwa. The subtly salty paratha and the sweet halwa make an interesting combination. Priced at Rs 40 for 250 grams, street food is taking off in the sun on social media.
You can see how the famous halwa paratha is made here:
The famous paratha measures two and a half feet by two and a half feet. It is made with a 700 gram dough which is then mixed with 100 grams of dalda and a little salt. The cook skillfully kneads the maida dough and rolls it out thinly on a wooden rolling board. To prevent the paratha from breaking or having air pockets, small holes are made in the dough and then it is lightly fried in oil for two minutes. Soon a thin and crispy paratha is prepared. It is impressive to see experienced cooks preparing the dish brilliantly.
the video, which is making the rounds on social media, is getting extreme reactions from people. While some are excited to try this interesting dish, others have expressed concern about hygiene issues. “That’s really huge!” one user commented, while another said, “Hygiene left the chat.”
