Paratha , How to make paratha , three easy ways
Published on Sep 23, 2016
A paratha is a flatbread that originated in the Indian Subcontinent. Everyones favourite here …people call it with different names in different regions .parantha, forota (in Sylheti), parauntha, prontha, parontay, porota (in Bengali), palata (pronounced: [pəlàtà]; in Burma), and farata
All-purpose flour 3 cups
salt 2 teaspoon
water (at room temprature ) to make the dough
ghee (clearified butter)
all-purpose flour to use for layering.
1. Roughly mix all-purpose flour and salt
2. Add egg and water in this flour and salt mixture and make a dough..consistency of the dough should be just like pizza dough ..not too soft or not too hard ..
3.let the dough rest for atleast 30 minutes into the refrigerator.
Note .this recipe will make four parathas.so devide the dough in four parts.
4.make dough balls for paratha as shown in the video using ghee(clearified butter) and all-purpose flour it will give beautifull soft layers to the paratha…
Note:we used ghee(clearified butter) in layering you can also use vegitable oil or margerine if you don,t like to use ghee(clearified butter).
5: For best results Refrigerate these doughballs for atleast 15 minutes
. Rolling refregerated dough balls will be easier for you as well.
6: Roll these dough balls to about 6-7 inches in diameter.
7: steak them applying ghee or oil on both sides as shown in the video, keep the heat medium.
Voila ..parathas are ready with crispy layers outside and soft layers inside
serve hot. With spicy mince , tikka seekh kebab , chicken tandoori or simply with omelett .
