Makes : 4

You will need

200 g all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon oil
85 - 100 g water ( to make dough )
1 beaten egg
Extra 1/4 cup flour
Extra 8 teaspoons oil


Sieve together flour, baking powder and salt. Rub the sieved flour with 1 tablespoon oil and slowly add water ( 85 - 100 ml ) to make stiff dough.

Divide the dough into 4 equal portions and shape them into round balls.

Roll out each ball into a thick flat round ( approximately 4 - 5 inches in diameter ).

Apply little oil, sprinkle a little flour and fold it into semicircle.

Again apply oil and flour. Fold in lengthwise. Roll it, press down and roll out again into a square of 8 x 8 - inch.

Brush the surface of each paratha with beaten egg and turn all four corners towards the centre.

Heat griddle and apply little oil. Put the paratha on it. Cook by adding oil around the edges.

Turn and fry the other side by applying oil.

When brown patches appear on both sides, remove from the griddle and serve hot with any Mughlai / North Indian dishes of your choice.
