Tracing the origin, this parathas were served as a signature dish at Southern parts of Tamil Nadu by the Sri Lankan Refugees who migrated to Tamil Nadu. Hence, the name Ceylon Paratha. It is actually a vegetarian dish but later devolved into many non-veg counterparts. Initially this was a combination of parathas stuffed with vegetables. However, the present form of Ceylon paratha is a plain paratha stuffed with onions.
