Aloo paratha process

For paratha:

  1. Take a mixing bowl, add wheat flour, ghee, salt and warm water together to make a soft dough like we make for chappathi. Knead dough for few minutes and finally add oil once again knead it.
  2. Set the dough aside and cover it with a damp cloth/plate. Let the dough rest for at least 20 minutes.
  3. Make equal sized balls out of dough and filling. Roll the dough into 3 inch diameter circles; place filling in the middle and cover completely with dough. Press lightly with your palm and dust with flour before rolling out into thick flat parathas. Continue the same process with rest of dough and filling.
  4. Heat a tawa, place parathas and cook both sides in medium flame. Drizzle little oil as needed, till golden brown. Serve hot with any raita and pickle.
