Imli Paratha / Imli Wala Chatpata Paratha

Imli paratha…. Are you wondering what it is??… Never heard before… Yes, that’s true. I have no doubts about it that you must not have heard about imli paratha before, let aside tasting it. Then how did it occur to me??

Whenever I was scratching my brain to think about an Indian flatbread starting from letter I, everytime word imli came to my mind. I just brushed that thought aside to that how can imli paratha be made. Then Vaishali, my co blogger and friend, posted lemon paratha. Again that thought of imli paratha started popping up in my mind…. If lemon paratha can be made, why not imli paratha. Finally I decided to give it a try at least. What could happen at the worst… It won’t taste good. So I immediately set for it and made just three paratha.

Since I’m trying to control my calorie intake these days (though it is not possible for a greedy foodie like me). I just made three parathas. I thought that I’ll give two paratha to my daughter in the lunch and will keep one for my husband. After clicking pics I took a bite of parathas just to taste that tangy paratha with a dash of sweetness….a single bite and My greedy foodie character came out. Can you believe that I alone feasted on two parathas and kept only one for my daughter forgetting totally about my husband. In the evening when I told him about this, he started making fun of me that I can never keep a control on my diet.

I was in such a hurry to taste the paratha that after clicking pics, Just started eating it without even bothering to see if the pics are good or not. Afterwords I realised that pics are not upto my satisfaction, but it was not possible to rewind the things and take pics again. Till then I make this yummy imli paratha again and click some decent pics, I’m going to post these pics only. Excuse me for not so good pics of such a delicious paratha.

Never mind, you make this paratha and send me the pics 😊

By the way, I forget to tell that I served this paratha with aloo ki sabzi, plain curd and apple chutney. Do look into my space to see how I made this super delicious apple chutney.

  1. Ritu , trust me I had a strong intuition that somebody would definitely make Imli ka Paratha – and here you go. !
    I bet it must be yum , thoda khatta thoda meetha !
    And you didn’t save even a bit for your hubby – that’s not fair!

  2. That’s a lovey pick for for ‘I’ …so unique and innovative! And we food bloggers shouldn’t think about reducing calorie intake….I have given up that goal and happily eat everything !!

  3. Ritu,we foodies can never keep away from good food. My hubby reckons that the only time I’ll be able tools weight is when I don’t blog. An interesting and fascinating flavor for a paratha. Imli never came to my mind. I love the taste of imli so can imagine the sweetish tangy taste. Awesome and I think you should make some again for your husband 🙂

  4. believe me while typing I am laughing like mad. first today Indore is number one for letter I. I too got the idea from Srivalli indori poori and searched for Indore cuisine and got one link and made mine. Another is calorie intake. I am feeling this month eating all parathas will make me stuff paratha only this year. I am yet to make 8 types of parathas… GOD help pls.

    This Imli paratha and lemon paratha making my mouth watering. Sounds fun to make.

  5. My mouth is literally watering after seeing those pics and reading your post. Even I cannot stop myself…and imli paratha, aah the khata meetha taste, yum

  6. Ah that was really so innovative! seriously. And on top you eat yourself without given your hubby, so mean of you..hehehe..but then you are forgiven if these parathas were so good!..good pick!
