  • Salt to taste
  • Water for kneading
  • Ghee for applying on the parathas
  1. Sieve flour and mix with the tsp. of oil thoroughly.
  2. Add salt, required water and knead to a soft dough. Cover and set aside for 15 minutes.
  3. Make 10 to 12 round balls of the dough.  Roll out each ball into a medium circle.
  4. Apply a drop of ghee, fold into a square.
  5. Roll out again into and larger square.
  6. Heat a tava or non-stick pan and place the chapatti on it and cook both sides on medium flame till small brown spots appear.
  7. Apply ghee and flip over, apply ghee and fry both sides. Repeat for the remaining dough.  Serve hot.
