Here is how I make parathas ,
2-3 cups Whole wheat flour,
3 tsp Cumin seeds,
slightly roasted and the crushed using mortar and pestle,
Salt to taste,
Oil for kneading and cooking parathas.
Make soft dough for paratha using all the ingredients, and add water as per needed to make it soft enough, just like roti. . While kneading dough, first add oil to it and the next add water. That will make it smooth. Keep the dough covered for 30 minutes.
Make lemon sized balls of it. And roll out into small size of roti. Now spread little oil over it and fold them to make half circle like shape . Then again take a drop of oil and spread it on the half circled shape and fold it again . That will make shape of quarter of a circle . Now with your hand just give it a little shape like triangle and roll out again such that the triangular shape is maintained.
Place it on a hot tawa, let it cook slightly from one side and turn the side, when half cooked on other side change the side again and spread little oil on half cooked side. And change the side, sread some oil on the other side and cook it until it turns brown in color from both sides. Serve hot with any vegetable main course you like.
I enjoyed it with Sev tameta nu shaak..
