    Dough preparation :

    • 1 cup whole-wheat flour, 1/2 maida
    • 1 cup water ( Use more as needed )
    • Pinch of salt

    (Its better it use 55% of water while making a dough, I like making then very soft and you need to kneed them well for best result and keep it aside to set for 10 - 15 mins)

    • Mix both the flour, add salt, 1 tbsp of oil , mix all well.
    • Now add warm water and mix dough well using hands.
    • Add again a little of oil , it helps the parathas to become crispy.
    • Knead the dough for a few minutes on a lightly greased surface to make smooth and pliable dough.
    • Set the dough aside and cover it with a damp cloth. Let the dough rest for at least ten minutes.

    Preparation of Paratha :

    • Roll the dough by dividing it into small equal balls. Same way prepare the stuffing balls and keep aside.
    • Now take a dough ball gently press the edges so that the center is little thicker.
    • Now keep the stuffing ball in center and fold the edges of the dough all over.
    • Gentle roll the dough using rolling pin make 6 inch circle of paratha.
    • Heat the skillet on medium high. ( I used an iron skillet).
    • Note: An iron skillet works best. To check if the skillet is hot enough, sprinkle a couple of drops of water on it. If the water sizzles right away, the skillet is ready.
    • Grease the skillet with ghee and place the paratha over the skillet.
    • After a few seconds you will see the paratha change color and puff in different places. Dab ghee little while flipping the paratha's.
    • Flip again and press with the spatula making sure the paratha is golden-brown on both sides.
    • Now the paratha is ready, go for the next one in same way.
