2 oz plain flour; (all-purpose flour)
1 salt; to taste
8 teaspoon ghee; melted
1 water; to mix
2 oz atta; for dusting

Directions: How to Cook Paratha

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.

Serving Ideas : Serve with curry, instead of rice
