Flat Tawa/Fry Pan
1 cup = 250ml, 1 tbsp = 15ml, 1 tsp = 5ml
2cupsWhole Wheat Flour/Atta
Salt as needed
Water as needed
Ghee/Oil as needed
In a mixing bowl add whole wheat flour, salt as needed. Mix well. Add water little by little and knead it into a soft pliable dough. Knead the dough with the palm of your hand for 5-6 mins gently until it is soft. Add a few drops of oil on top and let it rest covered for 5-15 mins.
Divide the dough into small balls, equally sized. Roll the balls of dough between your palms to make it even and smooth.
Take a ball of dough, dust it in whole wheat flour and roll it into disc of ~10cm diameter and it should be about 1mm in thickness. Now smear 1/4 tsp ghee all over the rolled out roti.
Fold the roti in half. It is optional to smear additional ghee here.
Fold it in half again to make a small triangle.
Roll into an even sized triangle. It is not needed to dust it in flour again, but it is sticky sprinkle very little flour as needed. Repeat this with rest of the dough, keeping each rolled out paratha on a newspaper or plate, not sticking with one another.
Meanwhile heat a tawa on medium flame. Once hot, place a rolled out triangle paratha. Cook until small bubbles appaear on the surface (for about 10-15 secs) and then flip.
Drizzle ghee/oil as needed on the top. Cook the other side for not more than 15-20 secs and flip again. Drizzle ghee/oil again on this side and flip to cook for 10 more seconds. Remove from heat.
Store the prepared parathas wrapped in kitchen tissue or cotton towel in a casserole/hotpack. Serve warm/hot with any side-dish of your choice.
Adjust salt and water to knead the dough depending on the taste and how much your flour absorbs water respectively.
For vegan version of this recipe, skip ghee and use cooking oil for rolling and cooking the paratha.
