# Have document's \parskip in minipage [duplicate]

I embed an illustration of variables next to the paragraph describing them:

\noindent\begin{minipage}{.48\textwidth}
\indent Lorem ipsum
\end{minipage}
\hfill
\begin{tikzpicture}
…
\end{tikxpicture}


You can already see my use of \noindent to avoid the whole textblock being indented. Then I try to explicitely indent the text in the minipage (I still need the first line indentation, like in any other paragraph).

I learned that minipage sets \parindent to 0pt. How can I set it to the value used in the rest of the document? (I would like to avoid setting a specific value that might fit or might not fit the template.)
