A paratha is a flaky multi-layered flatbread. Its often eaten in India as part of breakfast, but we eat them with curries for dinner.
- 125g white bread flour
- 125g wholemeal bread flour
- 5g salt
Mix together the flours and salt and add just enough water to form a stiff dough and kneed for a few minutes.
Divide the dough into 4 and roll each piece into a ball.
Flattening each ball as thinly as possible, with a rolling pin.
Spread a thin layer of ghee over the surface of the dough and sprinkle with a little flour.
Roll the dough up as tightly as possible to form a sausage shape and roll the sausage into a coil.
Leave to rest for 30 minutes.
Lightly dust your work surface with flour and flatten the dough out with a rolling pin to about 5mm.
Heat a little ghee in a frying pan and fry the breads for several minutes on each side until slightly puffed up and golden in colour. Serve immediately.
