This rich paratha is resplendent with the richness of ghee and the intoxicating sweetness of sugar! The sugar is incorporated into the rolled paratha, which is then folded and rolled again to seal the sweetness in. While cooking, the sugar melts and coats the inner layers of the paratha making it wonderfully sweet. The sweetness alone would not make the Sugar Paratha such a great hit. It owes much of its success to the splendid aroma of ghee, which we Indians love so much. It is important to serve the Sugar Paratha hot and fresh, preferably right off the tava, because it tends to get sticky and chewy on cooling.
