GET IT RIGHT
How to get your parathas right
If you are a beginner at making parathas, here’s how you should proceed:
Start by preparing the paratha with only half the amount of stuffing.
Roll the dough into 4-5 inch diameter discs.
Place 2 tbsp of filling.
Gather the outer edges of the disc and bring them together like a potli purse, holding the stuffing in place and pinching the edges to seal and create a flattened disc.
With lightly oiled fingers, and not a rolling pin, flatten the disc further with the least amount of pressure until you have a 6-8 inch diameter. This way you are guaranteed not tear the dough or squeeze out the stuffing from the paratha.
Cook on low heat so that the paratha cooks evenly from both sides. Happy cooking!
