The Indian food more popular in the West is typical of the North of the Indian subcontinent, a summary of the Punjabi and kashmiri traditions, very influenced by Persian and the Islamic invasions suffered under the Mughal dynasty with the Mughlai cuisine.

The laccha paratha is a typical Indian bread that looks like a flatbread and may be accompanied by any kind of dish consumed usually during breakfast and dinner.
