Cooking Time : 00:10 min Indian Breads Preparation Time: 00:15 min
Quantity Made: 6 Parathas
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons (165 grams) atta (whole-wheat flour)
½ teaspoon table salt
6 teaspoons ghee, melted.
1. Combine the atta and salt in a bowl.
Add ½ cup (100 ml) water and knead to make a medium-soft dough.
Cover with a damp cloth and set aside for 15 minutes.
2. Divide the dough into 6 portions and shape into balls.
Roll out into 3-inch (7½-cm) rounds.
Brush the surface of each with ¼ teaspoon ghee, then fold in half and then again in half
to make a triangle.
Roll out these triangles to bigger triangles with each side measuring 5 to 6 inches.
3. Place a nonstick griddle over medium heat and let it heat for 2 minutes.
Place a dough triangle on it and cook for 1 minute, turn it over, and drizzle ¼ teaspoon
ghee all around the edges.
Turn again and drizzle ½ teaspoon ghee all around.
Cook until both sides are light golden brown.
Repeat with the remaining dough triangles.
4. Serve hot with Pickle or Curry.
To make Parathas more soft and crispy add some Ghee while kneading the dough.
It will also help to absorb less Ghee while cooking.
