  • 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.
  • The dough’s texture needs to be really elastic otherwise the paratha won’t be soft.
  • You can add little oil in the dough and then knead the dough for longer duration
  • When the dough acquires desired consistency cover and rests the dough for 10-20 mins.
  • Now, divide the dough into 4-5 parts, roll it in the palm of your hands to make round balls.
  • Now dust these balls with dry flour, roll them with a rolling pin and shape them in thin circles.
  • Heat up a griddle or tava and smear it with a teaspoon of oil.
  • Gently place it over hot tava and cook from both the sides. Flip it when brown spots start to appear and cook from other side similarly. You can apply ¼ teaspoon oil before flipping.
  • Repeat the process till all theplas are cooked. Switch off the heat and have it with pickle or chutney.
