Chef’s Tips:

  1. Roll out the paratha with a gentle touch to get a proper round shape.
  2. You may use your hands instead of rolling pin to give a round shape to your parathas.
  3. Add enough water to make a soft dough because the hard dough will make your paratha stiff and raw.
  4. Cover and rest the paratha dough for at least 15 minutes before rolling, it will help you to make soft parathas.
