It is widely thought that if you have a gas hob, a 24cm aluminium pan is the ideal tool.  As I have electric and not gas, I use a flat-bottomed (vital, for ceramic hob), copper-bottomed stainless-steel pan from Aldi/Lidl with curved sides and a gentle curve where the sides meet the base.  Nothing ever sticks, and it is probably the best £29.99 I ever invested.  For paratha I use a ceramic-coated non-stick pan, same origin, same size, otherwise more-or-less identical apart from no copper bottom.
