  • 4 cups of Whole Wheat Flour
  • 3 tbsp. of Melted Butter (Makhan)
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1 cup of Water
  • Cooking Oil (for basting)
  • All-Purpose Flour (Maida) (for rolling)

  1. Add the melted butter to the wheat flour. Make a well in the center and add the water. Knead well to make a medium soft dough. Keep kneading, go ahead use that elbow grease, for about 5 to 8 minutes. Set aside for 20 minutes.
  2. Divide into equal balls about 2" in diameter. Roll out each ball approximately 4" in diameter, smear oil and dust with all purpose flour. Fold into half, so it looks like a "D". Again smear oil on the "D" and dust with all purpose flour.
  3. Fold again and it will look like a triangle. Roll out the triangular shape till it is 1/8th inch thick.
  4. Cook it on one side, on a tava or griddle, for 30 seconds and turn over. Smear oil over the top of the side that has been cooked first. Fry both the sides until golden brown and crisp on a slow medium flame.
  5. Serve hot. To keep warm keep in a recloseable tin lined with paper towels to absorb the moisture. When eaten hot off the pan it is mouth watering good.

Tip: For a simple, rich indulgence,
Top a freshly made hot parantha with a dollop of whipped butter,
Break off bite-sized pieces from the edge,
And dip them in the melting butter. Enjoy !
