- Make it a soft and non sticky dough. Close it and set aside for 30 minutes. Make them into small balls.
- Take a ball flatten it in your palm into a disc shape. Dip this disc shaped batter into the dry wheat flour.
- Flatten them using a rolling pin. Dont worry about the shape. Invert a bowl over the rolled dough and make the perfect round shape.
- After rolling all the dough, heat the iron tawa. Toast the parathas on both sides.
- Use a little butter or ghee while toasting.
- Healthy parathas are now ready to serve.
- Grating cabbage and onion makes it easy to knead and roll the paratas.
- Ajwain seeds can also be added.
- While flattening the dough and collecting them one above the other make sure to dust with the dry wheat flour on both sides or the flattened parathas would stick with each other.
- Before toasting the parathas wipe out any dry flour in the parathas.
Parathas are generally served with Raitha/Yogurt, Pickle, or Gravy based side dishses. I enjoyed these parathas with mushroom peas masala. Will share that recipe tomorrow..
