My mom's paratha
My mom's paratha

The food is a bread originating from India. This is my mom's recipe for making it. My mom makes it with a lot of vegetables including broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, peas, onions, tomatoes, ginger, garlic, kale, spinach, avocados, artichokes, lentils, and turnips. This is then blended and pureed. It is made into dough with wheat flour, rolled into a ball and rolled into a flat bread. My mom puts it into a flat iron pan called a tawa, which is from India and cooked and olive oil is added to get the final paratha. It represents my heritage as my family is Indian and it is a food that has been enjoyed throughout India.
