Bhujia Paratha is Sev Stuffed Paratha that has Sev mixed with spices and onions to make a delicious innovative paratha. Kids will simply love this one as it has the crunchy sev mixed with spices.
This paratha is surely a kid-friendly one as you have the delicious crunchy sev stuffed inside a paratha. You don't actually need a side dish for this, just a pickle and some curds on the sides would be more than enough. When I planned on making this, I wanted to complete another paratha which was on the same lines and will be coming up tomorrow.
So I think I was smart to make the same pickles for serving with these. However, if you thought I gave less work for myself, then no, I had to go and make those pickles the north Indian style so as to satisfy Hubby Dear. He is very particular about the pickles being the North Indian ones when I make stuffed parathas.
In the earlier years, when I was making stuffed parathas, I would always serve with south Indian style pickles. For many years he never said anything, finally opening up when we got a Rajasthani Pickle during one of the fairs we visited.
That's when he said he only likes North Indian pickles for stuffed parathas. Ever since then I have either make it myself or get that one. Since we are not big pickle consumers, the pickle stays on forever. To avoid this, I have ended up making smaller portions myself.
Today's Green Chili pickle is one such one from the cuisines of Rajasthan and we totally enjoyed the whole platter! For the Day 5 of Indian Flatbread, I have the Bhujia Paratha in the Bhujia Paratha Menu. I have another traditional one in C4AS.
