A survivor’s guide to Indian cuisine: Paratha Chicken

Paratha Chicken

“Yummy.”

I attended a charity fundraiser event where the food was cooked by the organizers themselves, and even though I didn’t get to choose a veg meal, I found it to be very tasty.

Fullness: 8

The Paratha‘s (on the left) are the things that make you full. I believe it has something to do with the fact that Indians have big families and so, their meals probably tend to focus on fast preparation and fullness.

Health: 7

You might think this is not very sanitary, but it looks like this only because it was homemade. The Paratha’s and the chicken were very fresh and the liquid in the bowl had very little oil in it. The Paratha is healthier than most other indian breads of the same type, because it is made from Atta flour rather than Maida.

Taste: 9

The freshness and softness of the Paratha was unmatched. This was one of the tastiest things I’ve eaten here and I’m still looking where to find it and try it again. The amount of spiciness in this meal was ideal, but it could have been served in better plates.

Verdict

Definitely try this. I don’t know anyone who had gotten sick from eating this and it made me believe what Indians were saying to me all this time: “Food in restaurants will never compare to street food in taste.”
