  • Take 3 cups wheat flour, 1 teaspoon oil or ghee and salt in a mixing bowl.
  • Mix well, add water and knead to a smooth dough. Set aside for 30 minutes.
  • At the time of making paratha, divide the dough into 6 equal balls.
  • take one ball and roll into a 6" thin disc.
  • Apply some ghee and spread evenly, sprinkle some wheat flour.
  • Pleat the dough from the opposite side.
  • Roll the pleated dough into a circle and roll into thin disc again.
  • Place the rolled disc on a hot tava and cook from both sides with some oil/ghee
  • Serve paratha hot.
