Servings : 4 parathas

A delicious soft yet crispy layered flat-bread, one of my family’s personal favourites. Parathas can be had with curries or pickles or just on their own.


  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (you can mix half all purpose and half atta if you like)
  • 2 tbsp. ghee (plus a bit more for rolling and cooking)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • warm water or milk (about 1/2 to 3/4 cup)


Add the salt to the flour. Rub in the 2 tbsp ghee, then slowly add in the warm water or milk and knead until you have a lovely soft dough. The more you knead it the softer your parathas/chapatis will be. Once it’s kneaded, divide the dough into two balls.
