Preparation time: 10 minutes  * Cooking time: a few minutes  * Makes 12 thin parathas

Ingredients How to?
For the dough

  • 1 teacup whole wheat flour
  •   teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon oil

     For cooking

  • 2   teaspoons melted butter



  • 1 teacup fresh curd

For making dough

  • Mix all the ingredients and enough water to make a soft dough.

  • Divide the dough into 12 portions and roll out each portion into very thin 150mm diameter rounds.

 How to proceed

  •  Cook on a tawa (griddle) very lightly for a few seconds.

  •  Put a portion of the desired stuffing in each paratha and fold. Arrange on a greased baking tray.

  •   Brush the parathas lightly with butter and bake in a hot oven at 200 deg C until  light pink in colour (about 5 minutes). Alternatively, cook on a tawa (griddle) on both sides and brush lightly with butter or oil.

# Serve hot with curd.

Health Information: Whole grain flour contains more vitamins, minerals and fibre as compared to highly refined flour where most of the vitamins and minerals are destroyed during processing. When parathas or chapattis are combined with a small amount of pulses and beans or with a dairy product like curds, the amino acids in these complement each other to give a higher quality of protein
