Square Parathas/Chapatis

Servings : Makes 4-5 parathas

Sometimes it's kind of cool to bring variety even when cooking the same stuff you normally make. An extra effort makes enjoying the food even easier. So, this is a suggestion on how you can make your parathas/chapatis look different even though the taste will remain as you like it.


  • 1 1/2 cups 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)

First make the dough. 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.

To get this square shape, cut a piece of dough and roll it out into a circle like for your usual parathas. Apply ghee and sprinkle some flour. Now take one side and fold inwards to the centre. Fold again from the opposite side, then again from the two ends, layering the folds on top of each other. Like how you would fold an envelope. You will already have a square shape. Let it rest whilst covered for a few minutes…then roll out into your square chapati. 🙂
