Bikaneri Papad Ka Paratha

Bikaneri Papad Ka Parathe

Sharing is caring!

Bikaneri Papad Ka Paratha is a paratha made with crushed papad mixed with onions and spices. The papad is roasted and crushed before mixing it and stuffing inside the paratha.

This is yet another of those fun and innovative parathas that kids would love to enjoy. I made these parathas along with Bhujia Sev Paratha. I had these planned before the lockdown but totally forgot to get the ingredients. After the lockdown, it became so tough to source these ingredients.

Though the origin of these parathas can’t be traced back to the city it is called after, we can well imagine it being prepared by some creative mom. Bikaner is a city in Rajasthan and hosts many such cottage industries related to the food industry like the Bhujias it is famous for it. Bikaneri bhujia are world famous and are popular across the globe.

These Bikaneri papads are on the same lines having masalas that are unique to the flavoring. We do get Punjabi papad in all shops. These specific ones were tough to source. So I made these when things settle in better ways and I was able to get the ingredients.

I planned for both the dishes as time was running short and was happy ticking off two dishes. Whenever I make a list, I get such uncontrollable glee ticking off the list. Clicking the pictures is one exercise and more than that, ticking off the list is the most important one.

Coming back to the recipe, it is a very simple one and yet so tasty if you are looking for new parathas. This Bikaneri Papad Ka Paratha is the last of the series in Indian Flatbread and in C4AS for the final day, it’s another Rajasthani Roti!

Come back next week for some lip smacking stuff!
