Tawa Paratha Recipe

Tawa Paratha is made on an iron griddle with ghee. These parathas are simple to make and can be used in place of naan and tandoori roti. These can be made in the shape of a circle, a square, or a triangle. Tawa paratha can be served with any vegetable, dry or gravy.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Additional Time 10 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes


  • 1 cup wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Oil , for kneading (according to use)
  • Ghee , or oil for cooking (according to use)


    1. To make Tawa Paratha, combine flour, salt, and a tablespoon of oil in a large mixing bowl and knead together while gradually adding water. Knead the dough again with a tablespoon of oil, then cover and set aside for 15 minutes.
    2. Knead the dough once more, then divide it into 8 equal parts.
    3. Warm the pan over medium heat. Roll out the dough and lightly press it with your palm.
    4. Roll it with a rolling pin after sprinkling it with dry flour. Apply 1/4 teaspoon oil to it.
    5. To make the paratha into a triangle shape, fold the rolled dough in half and then in half again.
    6. This will result in a peak triangle. Toss this triangle in flour and roll it into large triangles.
    7. Place this rolled paratha on a hot pan and, after a few moments, you should see air filling the paratha.
    8. Turn the paratha upside down and brush it with 1/2 tsp ghee. To lightly toast the paratha, use a flat spatula.
    9. Turn the paratha upside down and roast it again; this will cause brown spots to appear on the paratha and it to become slightly crisp.
    10. Take the paratha out of the pan. Repeat with the remaining dough and serve hot. For a weeknight dinner, serve Tawa Paratha with Burani Raita and Aloo Sabzi.
