Indian Restaurant with homemade Porotta Bread?

Hi,

Looking for an Indian restaurant in the Zurich area which makes its own fresh Porotta Bread. This is a marvelous bread with an oily dough which can be stretched very thin when kneaded. It is then fried just before eating.

See photos below.

Thanks for any tips.

Maybe if you knew the right name you would find them? Paratha is the correct name you will find them in the freezer at the indian shop off Answadstrasse. Happy munching

Re: Indian Restaurant with homemade Porotta Bread?

Thanks for the recommendation, but I am looking for a restaurant that makes it fresh on the premises.

Apparently there are various distinct varieties of this kind of bread, which have different names.

I first encountered this type of bread in Singapore, where they call it Murtabak but according to Wikipedia is a variation of Roti prata. Recently I had the pleasure of eating it freshly fried at an authentic Indian restaurant in Paris on the Rue du Faubourg St. Denis about 100 meters from the Metro stop La Chapelle, about a 10 minute walk from the Gare du Nord. This is a "Little India" type of neighborhood. Unforgettable, especially with the spiced tea (Chai). If you want to find the restaurant you just have to walk on the Gare du Nord side of the road and you will see a man in the window kneading and frying this delicacy. It is the only restaurant near La Chapelle where you can see this.
