    Paratha

    Paratha

    This one is a very simple recipe. Just combine everything together and roll out! :)

    Recently, I heard a friend mentioning, how her parathas don’t turn out well. How I do it is – I heat my pan real hot while I roll out the paratha.. Add the rolled out dough, to the hot pan, and simmer the gas. Increase the heat as I flip it over. Repeat the flip, while keeping the flame constant. I add the ghee / oil second time around (flip).

    If you do it differently, do leave it as a feedback :) Meanwhile, here’s a paratha recipe using 3 different flours…

     

    Wheat flour – 2 cups

    Maize flour – 1 cup

    Gram flour – 1 cup (besan)

    Salt – 1/2 tsp

    Cumin seeds – 1 tsp

    Green chili – 1 tbsp

    Fresh coriander – 1 and half tbsp

    Ginger – 1 tsp (minced)

    Onions – 1 medium ( finely chopped)

    Clarified butter – 2 tbsp (ghee)

    Water

    1. Mix all the above ingredients by adding water little by little
    2. You should have a hard ball of dough. (do not add too much water)
    3. Make balls of dough of equal proportions
    4. Roll them out thick with the help of wheat flour (for dusting)
    5. Fry them on a hot pan both sides twice. Apply ghee on your second time flip.
    6. Serve hot with mint chutney / pickle / plain yogurt / dal

     

    *if the pan is too hot simmer the gas

    * instead of onions, you can add chopped spinach / fenugreek leaves

     

    Till next time…. happy cooking! :)
