Has anyone else tried this yet? It's really good and I'm picky about Bhartha! Lots of flavor layers and lots of garlic. The new parathas are good as well.

    Just tried the new Malabar Parathas for dinner last night along with some of the new Paneer Achaari Rolls. Good flavor, but the rolls disinergrated into the sauce after heating, so that was a bit of a disappointment. The parathas were just like the ones I get in the south indian restaurants in Malaysia. Haven't seen the Bhartha yet, but will look next time as my kids like it.

      I thought the paneer rolls were terrible, had a chemical-ish taste. Interested in the parathas, though.

        I haven't see the Paneer rolls but definitely won't be trying them. The parathas are great, especially warmed up. The Bhartha is well worth trying.

          Thanks. I will look for the bhartha. I don't think I've seen it in my branch. Is it sold with rice, a la the paneer tikka masala?

            No, it's just bhartha, no rice. If you serve it with rice it's enough for 2 people.
