Parathas the easiest, fastest and most delicious way to dinner ever!

Parathas can be round, square or triangular in shape. The filling is usually mixed with the flour and prepared in a similar way to roti, although there is a variant in which a peda (ball of flour dough) is prepared that is flattened and the filling is included in the center. The two variants differ in their inner mass, while the first is thin, the second is slightly thicker and some layers of filling can be discerned inside.


300 g flour

125 ml water

 Clarified butter (or ghee, for cooking)


Mix the flour and water to make the dough, which we knead well before letting it rest for about 15 minutes.

We divide the dough into portions and we shape each portion into a ball.

We take a ball of dough and stretch it to form a circle 3-4 mm thick.

We paint the surface with melted butter, sprinkle it with flour, and fold the round of dough, first from left to right, and then from top to bottom.

We heat clarified butter in a pan, and cook the dough until some brown spots appear on the surface, then we turn it over.

Again we paint the surface with melted butter, while the bottom cooks without adding more fat to the pan.

We turn the bread over again.

We paint the other surface - the one we had not done yet - with melted butter and turn it upside down again, touching the bottom of the pan, to finish cooking.

We repeat this process until we have finished with all the dumplings.
