  • Keep the dough to rest in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours to rest.

  • Divide the dough into equal-sized portions and roll into balls till smooth.

  • Preheat a griddle or flat pan. Parallely, with a rolling pin (belan), roll each ball into a flat circle about 3mm thick.

  • Place the rolled out dough onto the heated pan and drizzle with Amrutam desi cow ghee around the edges as you flip the paratha occasionally till crispy brown.


  • Adjust wheat flour quantity as per the softness of the dough.
