Masala Paratha is a very simple and quick paratha to make. It can be served with any gravy or simple raita.
I got this recipe from my friend Renu couple of years ago when we were discussing about easy paratha recipes that kids would like.
So, it came in handy during this Blogging Marathon Quick meals segment.
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 2 minutes per paratha
For the Dough:
Wheat Flour : 2 cups
Oil : 1/2 teaspoon
Ajwain/Carrom seeds: 1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Red Chili powder
Mix all ingredients listed under to mix the dough with enough water ( changes depending on the flour, it was 3/4 of a cup for me) and knead to a chapati dough consistency.
Cover and let it rest for 10 minutes.
Make little bigger than golf ball size balls and roll into a 6" round. Smear some ghee, add some chili powder, chat masala and dry wheat flour.
Cut it and roll it as shown in the picture and roll back into a round or oval shape paratha to get flakes inside.
Heat a tawa and fry on both sides, add some ghee and fry for 30 seconds on each side.
Serve hot with any gravy or raita.
