  • 2 cups Wheat flour (for making chapatis)
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • Ghee for frying


  • Mix the water and flour together and knead it until you have a soft dough. More you knead it, softer the paranthas will be.
  • Take a small amout of dough and make into a ball about 2-3 inches
  • Roll the ball into a small circle about 4 inches in diameter. Brush one side of the circle with ghee.
  • Then fold the circle into a small square (as shown in the picture above)
  • Roll the square into a bigger square, about 4-5 inch in width.
  • Heat the skillet on medium high heat (alternate with high heat, if needed) and put the parantha on the skillet
  • Once the bubbles form, turn it over and brush it with ghee. In a minute or less, turn it over and brush this other side with ghee too.
  • Turn it around 1-2 more times until it's slightly browned on both sides as in the pictures.



Serve it hot off the skillet with cumin potatoes and mint chutney.
