Trader Joe’s Paratha Reviews

Paratha: 7.5/10

This #paratha was a delicious type of #indian bread and was really fun to try. The difference between paratha and naan, is that #naan has yeast and is baked, and paratha has no yeast and is fried on a griddle. Paratha is thinner and more oily than its fluffy counterpart naan. I found that paratha had more of a doughy flavor and a less bready taste. It reminded me a little of scallion pancakes. I liked paratha a lot, but don’t think it will be as versatile in my kitchen as naan. It was hard to dip in sauces or hummus because of how thin it was. I’ll still continue to buy it every once in a while as it was still yummy! Each bag comes with 5 small parathas for $1.99.

Have you tried it yet? What do you think?

  1. I give it like a 5.5 unfortunately. It does the job but nothing close compared to the Indian frozen brands. TJ’s frozen naan can stand up alllll day to the Indian brands, but not this paratha sadly!

  2. Paratha is the most versatile of the Indian breads, it can be used for savory or sweet dishes, I personally like to use it in place of crepe applications cover it is Nutella and add strawberries and whipped cream, also great for breakfast sandwich, breakfast pizza etc the possibilities are endless.

  3. I’m sorry that paratha looks uncooked, and what type of paratha is half serving. Clearly, Trader Joe’s don’t know that your supposed to eat the whole thing. Plz don’t disrespect Indian food.
