Doodh paratha, or milk paratha, is a unique type of Indian paratha or pan-fried flatbread. In contrast to the more standard parathas, which are typically savory, milk paratha is slightly sweet due to the addition of sugar.

We are preparing this paratha in the Bengali style. Try this delicious paratha, which is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, and share your feedback below. Enjoy it on its own or serve with some fresh homemade milk cream (malai).

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 45 min
Yields: 2 parathas

Ingredients

  • 1 cup maida (all-purpose flour)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp desi ghee (clarified butter)
  • 1/2 cup (or as needed) milk for making the dough
  • 2 tbsp milk powder
  • 1 tbsp (or to taste) ground sugar
  • Desi ghee, for frying the parathas

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, add the maida, salt, and desi ghee and mix well. Little by little, add milk and knead to make a soft dough. Knead the dough for 2-3 minutes after it comes together to make it soft and smooth; then cover it with a damp cloth and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  2. To prepare the paratha stuffing, add the ground sugar and milk powder. Stir until well combined.
  3. After the dough has rested, knead it again a few times and then divide into 2 equal portions.
  4. Heat a tawa over low heat and start making the parathas. Take one portion of dough, dust in dry maida, and then roll it out into a round roti. Spread a little desi ghee over it and then spread half of the stuffing over it. Fold the roti into a square shape, then roll it out into a slightly thick paratha.
  5. Spread a little oil over the hot tawa, then place the paratha over it and cook for 15-20 seconds. Flip the paratha and cook for 15-20 seconds on this side, too.
  6. Flip the paratha again and spread a little desi ghee over it. Flip one more time and spread a little desi ghee on this side, too.
  7. Cook the paratha by flipping frequently until it is crisp and golden on both sides. Transfer to a plate and prepare the other paratha similarly.
  8. Serve the parathas on their own or with malai (homemade fresh cream).

      I am reading this right before eating breakfast, and this is making me hungry. It looks similar to what we call pancakes. You could also top it with some fresh strawberries or blueberries on top of that fresh cream. Yummy!

      You must spend all of your time during the pandemic cooking. :) You should become a chef when this whole mess has ended. :)

      Blessings from a half-world away!
