Italian paratha recipe | Italian herbs paratha (Raks Kitchen)Italian paratha

A simple paratha, with Italian herbs in it, can excite your kids, especially with a cheesy dip!

I grabbed this idea when I was browsing Instagram, one of the restaurant serves this, but I was not sure if it was stuffed or simple paratha. I decided to just make it in the same way as lachcha paratha. If you are a beginner and still want to try this one, just add it to the flour and make it like regular chapati. Or little fancier, you can do it as triangle paratha too.

Cannoli Italian Recipe (Bon Appetit)


This is one of my favorite Italian desserts with Bon Appétit Chocolate  and the perfect ending to any Italian dinner-dessert. The shells are pretty simple to make, and taste so much better than the ready-made shells you buy in the Italian markets. Note that cooking time also includes chilling time, SERVINGS 24 Cannoli sticks.

Easy recipe and flaky. Best to use a canola oil and fresh at that. I mix the ingredients in a food processor and did have to add a bit more wine. Depends on the flour also.



  • 4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 3⁄4 cup white wine
