History of Parathas:
Talking about history of Parathas, it is the most popular flatbreads in the Indian Subcontinent, made by baking or cooking whole wheat dough on a tava, and finishing off with shallow frying. Parathas are thicker and more substantial than chapatis/rotis and this is either because, in the case of a plain paratha, they have been layered by coating with ghee or oil and folding repeatedly using a laminated dough technique; or else because food ingredients such as mixed vegetables have been mixed in with the dough, such as potato or cauliflower, cabbage, green beans, and carrots.
Discovered (or rather invented) quite easily, actually. The existence of the Indian stuffed paratha as we know it today goes back to somewhere in the early medieval period, well before the 12th century CE in fact. The parathas, when first invented, were usually sweet though. Similar stuffed sweet dishes, although of different shapes and sizes, were popular since the early centuries of the first millennium CE, and so a stuffed flatbread wouldn’t have been too difficult to imagine. After all, the plain wheat-flour flatbread (roti, chapati) was a staple.
