Can you imagine a life without one of India’s most popular staple dishes, parathas? It’s quite difficult to even think about it. As Indians, our cravings for parathas will never end, and as
true Indians, we always want to have only authentic, tasty parathas. So, instead of heading to the nearby restaurant this time, why don’t you make your very own at home? We have the perfect recipe for you!
Even though the range of parathas is so wide, we’re starting right from the basics: the plain paratha. However, unless you have the perfect atta, you can’t perfect the paratha.
- In a bowl, take Century Mills Atta, add salt, oil and water.
- Mix and knead into a smooth soft dough (add more water if required while kneading)
- Cover and keep the dough aside for 15-20 minutes.
- After the dough has rested, add another tablespoon of oil and knead it again for 2-3 minutes.
- Divide the dough into 10-12 equal portions and roll them into smooth balls. Flatten them slightly with your hand.
- Tap each portion into some extra Century Flour and dust them off before you put them on the rolling board.
- Make the portion into a circle with a 5-6 inch diameter evenly.
- Heat your tawa and when hot, place your paratha on it.
- Apply oil on the surface, wait for brown bubbles to appear, flip the paratha, oil that surface as well and wait for it to cook.
- Once it’s golden brown on both sides, take it off the tawa and place it into a heat-retaining container.
- If the circle doesn't come when you roll it, take any circular object and keep it on top of the flat dough to get an exact circular shape.
- If the dough looks dry, then add some water and if the dough looks sticky and moist add some extra Century Mills Flour and mix it.
Your parathas are now ready! Time to serve it hot with your favourite side dish!
