Every time I see or smell the taste of Aloo Paratha my mouth waters with my jaws wide open. I completely go irrational and I cannot control myself at any point . It is completely magical how my taste buds react but having said that I'm not shy to eat Aloo Paratha at any place or point of time. In Kathmandu you can get the Aloo Parathas at the local Tanduri Nan Shop. The famous one is the Lumbini Tanduri Nan Outlets which are spread across the capital. The specialty of this outlets are local Indian cuisines like dal makhani, rajma, panir tikka, dal fry, egg curry, chicken curry etc and most interestingly the prices are very less. It cost on averagely 20 to 30 for on Aloo Paratha and one Paratha is more than enough to give you that feel of yummy and full. You can find the outlet close enough if you search for it. If you are hungry and if you want to have a full appetite with good taste in your mouth then you must try the local Aloo Paratha.
