If you want to take the shortest trip ever to Delhi via your senses, just order in from Parathawala – a delivery based service in Bandra, Khar, and Santacruz.
The parathas came in neat pizza style packaging and I totally loved the hygiene factor (big plus point) and individual wrapping. Special mention for the very hipster labels on them. I like some quirk with my food, thank you very much. 🙂
The Spinach and Cheese Paratha: I’m one of those people who is averse to anything too healthy. The fact that spinach was merged with cheese inside a yummy paratha made me feel pretty darn good about my health choices. Also, I ate spinach. Hence, I’m strong now. Honestly, that is logic you really can’t argue with. So don’t mess with me. Okay?
The Chicken Paratha: As you already know, I’m a vegetarian. But the boy in my life would eat you if he had the chance, so obviously the chicken paratha was for him. He loved it. He described it as a minced tandoori chicken- filled spicy delicacy…or something like that. So I’m just going to take his word for it.
The Garlic Laccha Paratha: Now this one was a real winner for me. There was just something about the taste of this. It sounds so boring, no? Garlic Laccha -bas, nothing else. But it had just the right amount of garlic which sat well with my palate; very much reminding me of food at my Nani’s house in Delhi.
The real winner though was the Makhni Dal that came along with the parathas. Oh-My-God. I’m salivating as I think of it – that’s how good it was. Every two parathas come with Dahi (that I don’t care much for) and this heavenly dal (that I could basically consume for all meals).
The pièce de résistance though would be the Nutella Paratha. I’m a major Nutella fan and could totally have it with everything! So for me, loving this was a no brainer. If anything, i’d stuff more Nutella into it – but that’s just me. Even if you’re not a big fan of mixing chocolate with your food – just try this once. You know – for kicks!
Overall, the only thing I’d like to change is the salt content. Perhaps, they could go lighter on the salt. Apart from that, I thought it’s such a great (and economical) option if you’re looking for a home-delivered wholesome meal. Also, they have some super quirky flavour options. I will report back after trying some more…oh, I’m definitely trying some more.
