      In Pakistan I think most people use ghee to make parathas

      here its difficult to get hold of ghee , so I just use butter from the butter pots ... and sometimes oil ...

      Do you think that affects the quality of the paratha?
      The Prophet Muhammad SAW reported that the Satan said to Allah: "I shall continue to lead Thy servants astray as long as their spirits are in their bodies." And Allah replied: "(Then) I shall continue to pardon them as long as they ask for My forgiveness." [Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 742]

      Where are you living CB ? ofcorse you can get ghee here in UK ...


      and yes it makes a difference to taste and quality depending on what you use ... can e made from butter, margarine, oil and ofcorse the regular ghee or if you want the classic touch then you use the desi ghee and best recommendation for that is ..Eastend walon ka gree dabba desi ghee with a cow on it

      Most people I know in Pakistan make paratha with Dalda-type naqli ghee, not real ghee. Real ghee is expensive!

      In Pakistan if you use desi ghee once in a while then you will not mind it being expensive. Paratha should not be eaten everyday anyway.
      Fools never disagree.

      the best substitute for Dalda ghee is: Crisco Vegetable Shortening...available in most supermarkets. Good Luck!

      Everyone I know likes to eat parathas made in asli desi ghee. I prefer parathas made in oil, that is when I eat em once a year.

      You can buy ghee in most supermarkets nowadays so I'm not sure why you say it's hard to get hold of, especially since I understand you live in an area with a large Asian population?

      Anyway, I read that you can make ghee from melting butter and skimming off the impurities.

      you are talking about 'clarified butter'? yup, this clarified butter is similar to desi ghee but NOT quite.

      another way to make ur own desi ghee is by churning the 35% cream and then cooking it on low heat and then squeeze out the liquidy butter and discard the granular residue. this butter made this way is very close to the real thing

      Desi ghee is pretty easy to get a hold of here but I don't really use it as I hear its not all that great for heart patients. My dad is one.

      I use butter, margarine or oil on the very rare occasions we make them.

      I hate ghee ugh.

      We use butter and olive oil but everyone in our family prefers paratha's on the crispier side.
      OMG Paki!
