Cooking Time :
1 hour

Preparation Method :

  • In a bowl, take the maida and salt and mix well. Add the 2 tablespoons of  oil and rub it into the flour with your fingers.
  • Add the warm water a little at a time and knead into a firm yet elastic dough. Knead the dough a bit and leave to rest for 30 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into 15 equal parts and roll it out using a little dry flour into a roti about 6-7 inches in diameter. Using your fingers, spread a teaspoon of oil evenly onto the rolled out dough. Pick up the ends of the rolled out roti and fold it
  • Once you have a pile of folds, hold the two ends and shake it a bit to elongate the dough. Roll it into a circle like a snail. Press down lightly and using a little dry flour, roll it out into a layered roti about 6 inches in diameter.
  • Cook the paratha on a hot griddle for a few minutes, basting with a little bit of oil as you turn it over. Repeat with all the other portions of dough and serve hot with a gravy or curry of choice.


  • 500 grams Maida
  • 300 ml Cooking Oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Warm Water for kneading as per requirement
