Masala (spiced) Parantha or Black Pepper Spiced Flat Bread is most common breakfast bread eaten all over north India. Every household has its own version of Spiced Flat Bread. This version is very common in my family and favorite of every one especially with a sunny side up egg or omelet. Though nothing can compare the taste and aroma of spiced bread made with fresh kneaded dough, I usually adjust with my busy schedule and roll a batch of these breads over the weekend. Then, on busy weekday mornings, I just grab a few frozen breads, shallow fry them on hot iron griddle and you have it => The Homemade Breakfast ā€“ awesome goodness of whole wheat and what else do you need?
