Paratha and Daal

I prepared paratha and Gujarati daal last night. This good companion, i prefer daal with some soury tasted. By adding few drops of lemon juice, u will get difference tasted of daal.
Recipe: Paratha
-4 cup wheat
-4 spoon melted butter
-1 tsp salt
-1 cup water
-oil from grill paratha
-extra flour for rolling
1. Add the melted butter to the wheat flour. Make a well in the center and add the water. Knead well to make a medium soft dough. Keep kneading, go ahead use that elbow grease, for about 5 to 8 minutes. Set aside for 20 minutes.
2. Divide into equal balls about 2" in diameter. Roll out each ball approximately 4" in diameter, smear oil and dust with all purpose flour.
3. Fold again and make round shape it is 1/8th inch thick.
4. Cook it on one side, on a" tava" or griddle, for 30 seconds and turn over. Smear oil over the top of the side that has been cooked first. Fry both the sides till golden brown and crisp on a slow medium flame.
5. Serve hot. To keep warm keep in a recloseable tin lined with paper towels to absorb the moisture. When eaten hot off the pan it is mouth watering good.


  1. Wow. Did you make the paratha yourself? That looks really good. Have you tried Malaysian roti canai - I think it's very similar.

  2. Yes i prepared my own paratha, actually indian isn't difficult, the only things sometimes laziness attacked me to rolling in shape :)

    off course i know roti cane, available in my home country....
