  • Take 2 cups of whole wheat flour in a mixing bowl, add half a cup of maida and add salt to taste in it.
  • Pour a tablespoon of oil and mix the oil until it achieves breadcrumbs like consistency.
  • Add water to make a soft and pliable dough. Knead the dough with the palm of your hand for 2-3 minutes as that not only helps to release the glutton but makes a soft dough.
  • Keep kneading the dough for 6-7 minutes before rolling it for paratha.
  • The dough’s texture needs to be really elastic otherwise the parathas won’t be soft.
  • Take fresh peas and grind it to a coarse paste in a mixer grinder. While grinding it does not add water in the paste.
