- 1 cup wheat flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Oil , for kneading (according to use)
- Ghee , or oil for cooking (according to use)
- 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.
- Knead the dough once more, then divide it into 8 equal parts.
- Warm the pan over medium heat. Roll out the dough and lightly press it with your palm.
- Roll it with a rolling pin after sprinkling it with dry flour. Apply 1/4 teaspoon oil to it.
- To make the paratha into a triangle shape, fold the rolled dough in half and then in half again.
- This will result in a peak triangle. Toss this triangle in flour and roll it into large triangles.
- Place this rolled paratha on a hot pan and, after a few moments, you should see air filling the paratha.
- Turn the paratha upside down and brush it with 1/2 tsp ghee. To lightly toast the paratha, use a flat spatula.
- 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.
- 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.
