Stuffed paranthas in Sharjah

November back home in Delhi is the onset of winter when the heart most desires is the warmth of the quilts and the flavour of sugary ginger tea. As the temperature dips the appetite grows. Food around this time takes centre stage and so do the list of winter recipes whipped out of the kitchen. In most north Indian homes breakfast in winters is piping hot stuffed paranthas with curd and pickle as accompaniments.

Potatoes, cauliflower, fenugreek leaves — you name it and everything and anything edible can be rolled between a layer of dough and made into a parantha

Sadly in Sharjah, the AC is still on in November. But that did not stop us from indulging in a parantha brunch this Friday.  The man of the house was woken from his prolonged slumber to fetch a takeaway of paranthas from Jaipur Restaurant.

This blink-and-you-will-miss-it joint is actually a small cafeteria located exactly behind Al Zahra Hospital, Sharjah. Affordable and appetising my only grouse with the paranthas is their thickness; they could do with thinner paranthas where one can enjoy more of the stuffing. But I am not complaining. Methi daal ka parantha with dollops of curd and steaming tea was just the perfect start to my Friday.

Location: Behind Al Zahra Hospital, Sharjah

Parantha cost: 3.50 AED

Also try their dal baati churma on Thursday evenings. Very passé but can satisfy that craving for some Rajasthani cuisine.
