All varieties 2 for £2

Nice with some kebabs or tikkas!!

Authentic Food. Just cook it!! Ready to cook. Paratha, the unleavened bread originating in the northern part of the Indian sub-continent, have always been popular because of their crispy, soft texture with a light savoury taste. Shana Paratha are a joy to eat and are consumed at breakfast with yoghurt and pickle, at lunch or dinner as a meal in itself, or as a snack rolled up. Not only has Shana perfected the tastiest Paratha, they have taken out all the tedious work involved in making them. For perfect Paratha, all you need is a non-stick frying pan, a few minutes and a packet of Shana Parathas.

delicious :-)
#2
I love these!
#3
Thanks will try it.
Have some heat and rep!
#4
simple to make (or heat up) should I say. Nice with raita (yogurt and mint) or with a meat based meal. It's the asian quick fix version of beans on toast!
#5
This are lovely! Thank you! HOT
#6
this thread inspired me, just fried and ate a plain one.

Wow. Definately a bargain. I always order one of these whenever I have an Indian. Nothing beats a crisp, flaky Paratha to dip into your curry. I've tried making these in the past, but they've never turned out as nice as the ones I get from restaurants. I did use wholewheat flour though (which is supposedly used) but next time I'll try the proper Indian flour called Atta. I just need to find somewhere that sells it.

Not really an Asda near me, so the next time I pass one on my travels I'll definately be picking some of these up!

this is such a commercial product, believe me it tastes nothing like a real Paratha should taste, on many occasions ive attempted to buy the pre-prepared jars of sauces etc from brands such as sharwoods, pataks, etc etc, and I cannot believe how disgusting they tatse. But yet people love them, ok i have the benefit of being raised on home cooked indian food but to date ive not come across anything that should taste like it "AUTHENTIC" as they claim, and wtf this company claims it originated in the north part of India, what a load of gobbledy goo, anyway thats another story. let me explain, it's a bit like me going to Tesco's and buying a ready to eat tuna pasta mix and then compare that to eating in a fine indian restaurant, ok i know an extreme comparison, but believe me thats the difference in taste between this stuff and the real stuff.

Simplicity, convenience, best next thing and the cost is sometimes the name of the game.
#16
yep that is exactly how it is. But it is all a marketing ploy so that the consumer buys their product.

These taste okay I think they might be full of sugar nothing beats the real thing though in Punjab with all the nice makhan (butter) mmmm and a glass of buffaloes milk mmmmmmmmmmm

agree with the convenience, sorry cost doesnt come into the equation, because you could purchase the ingredients (most of which you may already have in your kitchen, and you could produce about 20 of these for £2 worth of flour & butter. If anyone wants recipe for the authentic deal just pm me.
#18
They really taste gooo...d
#19
I would agree that these do taste nice and are easy to cook, but don't think too much of the deal. They've always been sommut like £1.08 in my local apart a 2 week period when they went back up to their supposed usual price of £1.58.
#20
Not very good - can't believe its hot! Get married to an Asian or watch Mahdur Jaffery on Youtube for proper food & you'll never buy this crud again!
#21
Nothing compared to the real thing, £2 for a paratha, I dont think so. For any non-asian people dont be fooled by this cheap asian imitation. You want the real thing with achaar, it doesnt need sugar in it.

Come on.... you don't need to get married to an Asian just to eat Paratha.... please find any other good reason!
Food is a personal preference, each will have their own choice.... if you don't like let it be.... but you should not give an general opinion

I pledge if you think you really have a authentic recipe why don't you publish it in this thread, instead of asking for personal message :p

recipe off the net. this is for plain. you can put any filling in like boiled potato, sugar, cauliflour or my favoutite (fenugreek(methi) mix this in with the dough), the others go in the middle as a filling.
Paratha Recipe

Parathas recipe Ingredients:


For Paratha Dough (atta):

Wheat Flour 2 Cups
salt 1/2 tsp
oil
Ghee/butter/Margarine 1/2 cup
water


Method:

If using Butter bring it room temparature.

Mix flour salt & required water to make a dough consistency.
Rub oil over & knead it soft .Let it rest for an hour.

With a help of a rolling pin take a lemon sized dough .
Roll it to a a small round & apply some butter /ghee to it.
Fold into two again fold the same. Start rolling to form a triangle.

Heat a flat pan ,when it gets hot add the paratha and let it cook for a minute.
When it starts to get small bubbles turn around & add a small teasp of oil
around the paratha. When the brown spots appear take it out & keep it in an in a covered box & serve
#25
the plain are 74p for 6 in asda, there's absolutely no way I'd be going to that much trouble for what is essentially a convenience food for me.

No mate, they're not. Full of fat and laden with calories. They are tasty though. If you want the healthy version, get the one called ROTI. It'll probably be on the same shelf. Roti is similar, just a little bit more bland as it comes without the extra calories of oil/butter.

Yeah but that will cost you several hundred pounds. These are 2 for £2 :)

Might not be the real, 100%, authentic stuff but it's far from crud. You shouldn't really be putting people off as taste is a personal choice. Personally, I think the taste is quite nice.
#27
Also for those who may not know 1 Pack has 5 Paratha's in it, so for £2 your getting 10. Which makes it 20p each! Good deal IMO!!!

I've actually tried this method and it does not taste as it should. I know you've probably C&P the first one that came to you - but this recipe really doesn't make it taste nice at all. I went out and purchased the products neededm including the ghee (nice sized tin) and it's nothing like what you get in a restaurant. Also - the folding into triangles is meant to create the "flaky" effect that we all know and love. Sadly this recipe is too "stodgy" to do just that. Even with less water, or trying various measurements have no success. Personally, as I stated earlier - I believe you need the proper flour, in this case "atta".

These may be commercial but don't write them off straight away. My mother-in-law serves them and she's a good cook (from the Punjab). Not just her, these are stocked in Indian shops.
Maybe they are to paratha what a home baked loaf is to Hovis, but at least they are consistently good (unlike when you order paratha from take-aways - 90% of the time a thick lump of hard oily bread and 10% fantastic.

bought some of these yesterday to try and now have ten packs in the freezer,damn sight better than any shop bought naan bread ,and tastier too
