Paratha Dough

Paratha Dough is not very difficult to make, you have to keep a Firm look at the quantities you are using, ideally we take 1 cup of water For 2 or 2.5 cups of Flour, so you need to use your own skills For that, the recipe I have given below is accurate and made several times, thus its authentic, you can try this …


  • 3 cups of wheat Flour
  • 3 tbspns plain Flour
  • 1 – 1 ½ cup luke warm water / enough water to make an elastic dough
  • 2 tbspns olive oil or butter


-Sieve Flour and plain Flour in a mixing bowl.

– Add enough water gradually and mix with your hands to make a soft to firm dough. If you are new at making chapattis/ parathas, it is better to have a little firmer dough, which is easier to control while rolling out.

-Knead for a couple of minutes and add butter or oil and then knead again. Sprinkle some water, cover and leave to stand for 10-20 minutes or so. Knead a little again. Now you should have smooth, soft dough. 

-This process can be done quickly with the kitchen mixer/ dough maker.


Soft paratha dough is ready.


-Refrigerate For Further use.

-Store it covered otherwise its surface will dry.


This is going to make 10 parathas.
