|Prep time||Cook time||Ready in||Yields|
- Atta (whole wheat flour dough), as needed
- 1 to 2 pinches ajwain (carom seeds)
- 1 to 2 pinches salt
- 1 to 2 pinches red chilli flakes (optional)
- Vegetable oil, as needed
- Take some dough and dust it with dry flour. With a rolling pin, roll it out into a medium-thin round shape, about 5-6 inches in diameter.
- Sprinkle salt, carom seeds and red chilli flakes on top of the dough. Fold the rolled-out dough to form a square.
- Roll it out once more into a medium-thick square paratha.
- Heat a skillet on medium heat; then brush a little oil over its surface.
- Reduce the heat to low-medium. Place the paratha in the skillet and roast one side for about 15 seconds. Flip it over and roast the other side for 15 seconds.
- Flip the paratha again and spread some oil on top. Flip it again and spread some oil on this side, as well.
- Flip the paratha repeatedly until it is roasted crisp and brown on both sides.
- Remove the paratha and serve with some fresh cream and pickle.
