Paratha is a bread that accompanies Indian dishes that resembles a tortilla. Paratha can be made plain or may have spices kneaded into the dough.
Serve with Permjit’s Chicken Curry, Raita, Spiced Rice
Serves 10-12 Paratha
- 2 ½ cups wheat flour (wheat flour may be softened (OR may substitute 1 1/2 cups wheat flour and 1 cup white flour.)
- ¾ c cold water
Heat a tortilla pan over medium heat.
In a large bowl add ingredients together to make a soft, but slightly sticky, dough mass. Break pieces of dough off the size of tennis balls (for smaller Paratha use golf ball size dough pieces).
Flatten and roll into a circular disk with a thickness of a dime.
Place dough disk onto hot pan and allow to cook about 1 minute per side, until slightly brown or toasted. Air pockets will appear and may even become pillow like if left on the heat. Remove and place into a basket to keep warm. Repeat cooking instruction until completed.
