  • Mix the wheat flour and maida. Add 2 tbsp cooking oil, Parantha masala, green chilies, chopped green onion and salt to taste and mix well.
  • Knead the flour into smooth, firm dough and keep aside in refrigerator for ½ hour.
  • Divide the dough into equal sized balls.
  • Flour a clean surface and roll each ball out into a circle about 4” in diameter.
  • Sprinkle some dry wheat flour over it and roll it into a finger shaped structure. Coil this finger into a spiral.
  • Flour the rolling surface lightly and very gently roll out the spiral into a flat circle about 5-6” in diameter.
  • Heat a griddle or ‘tawa’ and carefully put a paratha over it. Allow to cook for a minute then turn it over. Drizzle a bit of oil on the top and spread well over the surface of the paratha. Smear a little oil on the surface of griddle or ‘tawa’ along the edges of the parantha. Flip and drizzle some more oil on this surface too. Continue to flip the paratha frequently, pressing with a spatula on any unbrowned areas until browned all over on both the sides. The parantha is done when both sides are crispy and golden brown.
  • Serve with Green Coriander Chutney and /or Curry of your choice.
