  • 2 Cups All Purpose Flour/Plain Flour/ Maida
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 Cup Milk at room temperature
  • 1/4 Cup Melted Ghee (Clarified Butter)
  • 1/4 Cup Melted Ghee for brushing
  • Flour for dusting


  • In a large bowl, Add the flour, sugar, salt, milk and ghee.  Mix everything, and then knead well to form a smooth and soft dough. Use milk only to make the dough.
  • Let the dough rest for 30 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes, roll the dough into a large rectangle. Then apply some ghee and sprinkle some flour on top of it.
  • Fold it one above the other or grab both the edges and align it in the center to form an envelope. 
  • Again apply ghee and sprinkle flour till you get a small rectangle. The key here is to have as many layers as one can have.
  • Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  • After 15 minutes repeat the above 4 steps and refrigerate again for 15 minutes.
  • In all you would need to refrigerate minimum 3 times.
  • After the last refrigeration, roll out the dough again and use a cookie cutter or the back of a saucer and cut into circles.
  • You can lightly roll the circles again to thin the paratha's or to enlarge it if your paratha looks too thick.
  • Alternatively one can divide the dough into equal size balls and roll each like a paratha. 
  • Shallow fry them using ghee on medium until golden from both the sides.
  • Once cooked, hold the paratha in a clean kitchen towel and lightly crush it within your palms so that the layers come out.
