We make our fair share of bread but have only made parathas once before. Though this was a Jamie Oliver method from “Save with Jamie” and he called the chapatis. For what it’s worth, they seemed the same to us. I just did a quick Google search, and indeed, they are the same thing. With good memories of that and plans for an Afghani lamb and rice dish from the amazing “Sirrocco” from Sabrina Ghayour (which we reviewed in June 2016) Ruby’s version seemed an obvious accompaniment.
It’s interesting that, for something so basic, how different the two recipes are. Jamie uses both white and whole wheat flour, Ruby just white. He adds olive oil and milk, hers calls for butter and water. What they share: both are easy and disappeared quickly. These will have to become a regular on curry night.
