Ajwain paratha / Paratha recipes / Video recipes

Written by: 7aumsuvai
Paratha prepared with Ajwain / Omam and wheat flour / Atta, which can be served with paneer gravy or any non-vegetarian gravies.

Yields: around 15 parathas
  • 2 to 3 cups – Wheat flour
  • 1 tsp – Ghee
  • 1/2 tsp – Ajwain / Omam (crush it with palm)
  • 1 tsp – Oil for kneading
  • Salt as needed
  • Water as needed
Preparation method:
  1. Take a mixing bowl, add wheat flour, ghee, crushed ajwain,salt and 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 30 minutes.
  3. Make equal sized balls out of dough. Roll the dough into 3 inch diameter circles; add little oil in the middle and cover completely with dough like square (shown in the video). 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 oil as needed, till golden brown. Serve hot with any gravy of your choice.


    • You have to be generous while drizzling oil for making parathas. Roti does not require this much oil, but parathas are crispy on top and soft in the middle.
