This Paratha is flaky and will melt in your mouth. Serve it with your choice of gravy. It’s a perfect dish for any meal. I already posted Kerala Parotta/Malabar Parotta which is a similar dish but needs longer resting time. This paratha is ready in 30 minutes.
I served it with Chicken Salna.
Preparation Time : 10 minutes
Resting Time : 20 minutes
Makes : 7 Parathas
Maida : 4 1/2 cups
Sooji : 1/3 cup
Powdered sugar : 2 tablespoons
Salt : 3/4 tablespoon
Ghee : 3 tablespoons + 2 tablespoons
Warm Water : 1 1/2 cups
In a large bowl, add all ingredients and knead well to form a soft dough. Cover it and let it rest for 20 minutes.
Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of ghee and knead well again. Make 9 equal size balls.
On a floured surface, take one ball and roll it into a thin chapati. Cut into small strips as shown in the picture.
Smear some ghee and some flour, pull the pieces together, stretch them and roll into a disc. Roll it again into paratha.
Heat a tava, fry the paratha on both sides adding some ghee.
Repeat the same process with rest of the dough.
Serve hot with some salna or gravy.
