I thought this was quite interesting - a simple way to make and cook parathas using a loose (runny)

Thank you Jon, looks interesting, and as a paratha fan I will certainly be having a go.  But what surprises me is that in the opening "poster" frame all of the paratha are folded into four

It's a bit of a stretch calling it a paratha. More like an eggless pancake.

paratha are supposed to have a flaky texture, whence the reason that one traditionally crumbles them in a napkin before serving,

Say what now? That's a new one on me. Certainly the characteristic of a paratha would be soft and yet flaky due to the layering. But what's all this crumbling in a napkin before serving malarkey?

Oh dear.  I wish I didn't have so many Indian cookery books.  It will take me an eternity to discover where I learned that.  More if I ever find out.  But until then, here's a quotation from the web :

In Bangladesh , a special type of paratha is being served in the roadside local restaurants

I was disappointed in his bhuna/rogon-josh double trick. You don't make a rogon josh by just adding a topping to a bhuna. No!

I haven't watched all of his videos but the ones I did watch seemed like fairly standard BIR practice.
