Flaky Parathas


          There are many types of flaky parathas that are really yummy and best enjoyed with a delicious side dish, both veg. or non-veg. This layered, crispy and flaky parathas are made of both plain flour and whole wheat flour. This is a very simple and an unique procedure of making it. So please check for a step by step method with pictures to prepare it.








  • 1 cup maida (plain flour)
  • 1/2 cup atta (whole wheat flour)
  • salt to taste 
  • oil to shallow fry







          In a bowl mix together both the flours and salt. Add water, little at a time and knead a soft dough. Keep aside for 20-25 minutes. 

          Divide the dough into 10 equal portions. Roll out each portion lengthwise by dusting some flour. Take 2 rolled out dough each time and smear some oil over them. Then sprinkle some flour.

          Now place one on top of the other. Bring the end of the lower portion on top and subsequently the other on top of the second fold (as shown below).

          Dust some more flour and roll out into a round shape paratha. Make similar parathas following the same method. 

          Heat a tawa / griddle and fry the parathas one at a time by drizzling some oil all over. Cook on a medium flame till they turn light golden in colour. 

          Transfer to a serving plate. Your flaky parathas are ready. Serve them hot with any side dish, some sliced onion, green chilies and lime.
