Ulta Tawa Parantha

Ulta tawa literally translated means "inverted griddle." This nawabi parantha is cooked on an inverted tawa which resembles a kadai minus the handle. This parantha has a slightly sweet aftertaste which blends well with kormas and kebabs. In Lucknow you are bound to find this bread in every street made famous by legendary "Tunde Miyan."

Pour milk in container and add saffron, green cardamom powder, kewra, rose water, sugar, salt and sooji.
