  • Knead again using the remaining ¼ tsp of oil till smooth and elastic. Keep aside.

How to Prepare parathas-

  • Divide the dough into 4 equal portions and roll out a portion of the dough into a 175 mm. diameter circle using little flour for rolling.
  • Place a portion of the stuffing in the center and fold the edges to make an envelope to cover the stuffing.
  • Cook the paratha on a non-stick tava (griddle) with the open edges at the bottom using 1 tsp of ghee till it turns golden brown in color from both the sides.
  • Repeat with the remaining dough and stuffing to make 3 more parathas.


Enjoy your parathas hot, you can add a dollop of butter, Makhan, or desi ghee and relish with chilled boondi raita, dal makhani, along with sliced or chopped salads.
