    Ingredients to make Paratha at home

    • 3 cups of Maida/All-purpose flour
    • 3 tbsp. of Semolina/Rava
    • 2 tbsp. of powdered sugar
    • 1 tsp. of fine salt
    • 1 tbsp. of Ghee
    • an egg.
    • Half glass of milk
    • Warm water (as required)
    • Oil (as required)

    Preparation – How to make Paratha at home?

    Making the dough

    • Mix the flour, semolina, sugar, and salt, egg, ghee, and milk in a large bowl or clean surface.
    • Create a hole in the centre of the mix, add 100ml of warm water and knead the mixture with hand.
    • Add warm water as required, until the dough becomes smooth and soft. The dough mix should have consistency same as that of chapatti dough.
    • Knead the dough mix into one large ball and cover the surface with oil. Leave the dough undisturbed for an hour.
    • Take the soft dough and knead it again for 2 mins. Now, divide the large ball into equal sized small balls.

    Making the parotta

    • Apply oil/ghee onto the surface or rolling board.
    • Take one small dough ball and flatten it using a roller, into thin circular disc shape.
    • Cut the flat dough into thin strips and then roll it together to form a long tubular shaped dough. Stretch this dough as much as possible and then, hold one end of the dough and roll it in circles like a Swiss roll (as shown in the figure).
    • Similarly, apply oil/ghee to surface again and make Swiss roll-shaped dough from small dough balls (as mentioned in the above steps).
    • Take each Swiss roll-shaped dough and flatten it into circular discs with hand.
    • Grease the Tawa with oil and place it on the flame. Make sure the Tawa is hot and place the flattened dough on it. Once cooked, flip the parotta and cook the other side.
    • Once golden brown and crispy, remove the parotta from Tawa. Similarly, cook all the parotta.
    • Hold the hot parathas together and crush it from both sides to differentiate the layers.
    • Serve it with a side dish of your choice. Take a look at our chicken curry recipe if you are a non-vegetarian.
