 Ingredients List

  • 2 oz Plain flour; (all-purpose
  • -flour)
  • Salt; to taste
  • 8 ts Ghee; melted
  • Water; to mix
  • 2 oz Atta; for dusting


Sift flours and salt into mixing bowl. make a well in the centre and add
the melted ghee and fold in flour to make a crumbly texture. Very gradually
add enough water to make a soft but pliable dough. Cover and leave to rest
for 1 hour.

Divide dough into 12 equal portions and keep covered. Take one portion at a
time and roll onto a lightly floured surface to about 4" in diameter. Brush
with a little ghee and sprinkle with atta.

With a sharp knife, make a straight cut from centre to edge. Lift a cut
edge and roll into a cone shape. Lift it and flatten it into a ball. Roll
it again on a floured surface unilt it is about 7" in diameter. Repeat for
each portion. (This is similar to making rough-puff pastry)

Heat a griddle and cook one paratha at a time, placing a little ghee along
the edges. Cook on each side until golden brown. Serve hot.
