Making Paratha Method I

Method I: Khasta Paratha

  • Divide the dough into equal balls. Dust lightly the rolling surface and roll the dough balls into 7-8-inch discs.
  • Apply 1 tsp oil evenly over one side. Dust dry maida over this oiled surface.
  • Fold one third of the disc as shown in the picture.
  • Again fold one third from the other side to form a three layered strip.
  • Fold one third of the strip over other two third part.
  • Fold again other one third part thus making a square which is nine layered.
  • Roll out it into a paratha. At this stage you can cook it on tawa.
  • If you want more layers, fold the Paratha as shown below and form a blob.

  • Remember each time you have to apply some oil and dust maida over the surface.
  • Flour the rolling surface lightly and very gently roll out the blob (pedha) into a flat circle about 7-8” in diameter.
