Indian subcontinent native flatbread is called a paratha. Sanskrit is the source language of the Hindi word paratha. Parathas began in Peshawar and quickly spread throughout the Indian subcontinent. People would just purchase this bread early in the morning as they left for work in Peshawar, where it first appeared as a filling breakfast. Later, parathas acquired popularity throughout the rest of India and Punjab, where people made their own variations of the Peshawari paratha. When he argues that parathas were popular with the nobles and aristocracy in Punjab, Nijjar (1968) mentions earlier allusions to paratha in his work Panjb under the Sultans, 1000–1526 AD. An essential component of an Indian subcontinental breakfast is the paratha. Ghee is traditionally used, however, oil can also be utilised. For health reasons, some folks might even bake it in the oven. Dollop after dollop of white butter is typically consumed on top of the paratha. Curd, fried eggs, omelettes, mutton kheema (ground mutton cooked with veggies and spices), nihari (a lamb dish), jeera aloo (potatoes lightly fried with cumin seeds), daal, and raita are all excellent side dishes to serve with paratha for breakfast. It could be filled with qeema, potatoes, paneer, onions, or hot peppers.
