Our Review Factors
This section speaks on what we looked for and the parameters we set while reviewing iD Malabar Paratha.
We were looking for a fresh-tasting, aptly-salted pack of malabar parathas. Unarguably, a common occurrence with RTE products is how the fats used may develop a stale aftertaste.
How did iD Malabar Parathas perform?
A stack of thin flaky layers with a melange of soft yet crisp bites. Malabar Parathas are interestingly simple. That said, the texture is heavily dependent on the oil to flour ratio, how it’s kneaded and rolled out.
We tried to find if a packaged variant could replicate the manual efforts of kneading and rolling.

iD Malabar Paratha – Detailed Review
Price + Packaging
One pack holding 5 parathas (80 grams each) is priced at Rs 90/-. The use-by date has been mentioned on the pack along with heating instructions.
This is made with refined wheat flour (60%), RO purified water, edible vegetable oil (rice bran oil), edible hydrogenated vegetable fat (palm and til), and iodized salt.
How did we make this?
Following the instructions on the pack, we heated one paratha on a preheated tawa, flipped it, and cooked until both sides developed golden-brown spots.
It was then tasted with a gravy.
Aroma + Appearance
First up, the parathas were large-sized. It covered almost the entire surface of our pan. There was no off-putting aroma of fat. We could see the flaky layers with a few light brown spots, before cooking.
Taste + Texture
Delightful. This word captures our entire experience with iD Malabar Paratha. Why, you ask?
That’s because the taste and texture both worked in a synchronizing manner. Adequately salted, these parathas were fairly quick to cook. There were no rancid or industrial flavors, which we appreciate. Moving to the texture, it was all you seek from a good quality Malabar paratha. The edges were thin and crisp, with a slightly thicker center that was soft. The multiple flaky layers got this a big thumbs up from our team.
This would pair wonderfully with almost all stews and curries.
- Quick cooking
- Fairly priced
- No added preservatives
- Authentic taste and texture
- Flaky and crisp with a soft centre
A quick dinner option? Minus the fuss? YES! We recommend iD Malabar Paratha for these and more.
