From aloo to paneer, paranthas are our favourite food. We Indians have a thing for them and no matter what, we can’t stop loving & eating paranthas.
Today I want to talk about the underrated hero of the parantha universe which we all love but forget to appreciate often- cheeni ka parantha.
For those who have never heard of it or never tried it, trust me you have not only missed out on a delicious dish but also sweet childhood memories.
I used to ask my mom to made me cheeni paratha on Sundays.— Ansa Tariq (@AnsaTariq2) July 28, 2019
So precious,only memories left.
Moreover, we can’t be friends if you do not know that cheeni vala parantha is a thing.
Growing up, it was my favourite form of parantha and it still is. And there are several reasons for it.
All those times when we didn’t like what our moms cooked for us, cheeni ka parantha came to our rescue. It is so wholesome in itself that it can be our breakfast, lunch or dinner. Or even all three of them.
Cheeni ka parantha gains more significance during rainy days. It feels like heaven eating hot and crisp parantha while it rains.

If you are one of those who have questions as to how it is made, it’s like any other parantha with sugar stuffed in it. And yeah, not to forget the ghee used to cook it.
I particularly enjoy eating it standalone, but there are people who top it with malai and rabri, making it the best sweet dish ever. Some people even enjoy eating cheeni ka parantha with aam ka achaar.

Idk if I’m ever gonna stop craving for cheeni wala paratha every night at 2 am.— محترمہ بدتمیز (@badtameezOrat) April 11, 2019
It satiated my sugar cravings when I was in hostel, living away from home. With no money to buy mithai, I made myself a crisp cheeni parantha and the day was sorted.
Tbh, who even needs a mithai when you have cheeni ka parantha in your meal.
Cheeni wala paratha made by Mom is the sweetest dessert ever. <3— حرا (@Hirayyee) October 29, 2016
And the sense of accomplishment that we got after making cheeni vala parantha is inexplicable. Yes, you need to be good enough to cook that parantha without burning it.
No matter how bad your mood is, cheeni ka parantha can always make things better.
