Flaky Paratha / Parota / Easy Malabar Parota

Flaky Paratha with Vegetable Korma
Paratha is usually called as parota over here.Here in Nagercoil there are so many parota shop,They usually serve parota  with a lovely salna,it will be so nice to have  on a rainy day.The Parata they make is entirely different there are so many methods in doing that,they will just throw the dough in air to make it thin but it doesn’t work for me.But this recipe is so simple and the parota even turns out so flaky and so soft.So every one can try it.I served it with Vegetable Korma(For recipe Check this Link ) but you could serve it with Chicken gravy  or Salna .I had even given Step by step instructions so it will be so helpful to you.So Just make it over this weekend and please let me know how it turned out.



Ingrediants:

All purpose Flour(Maida)- ½ kg
Warm milk-300 ml
Oil-3 tblspn
Sugar-1 tblspn
Salt to taste

Method:

Mix every ingredients in a mixing Bowl and form a dough,cover it with a damp cloth and let it rest for about 4 hours.

In a bowl add around ½ cup of maida and pour in some oil and make it into a smooth paste and set aside.

Divide the Dough in to equal portions.

Take a dough ball and spread it into a thin chappati,Add in a tblspn of maida oil over the chappati and spread it evenly.Now with a sharp knife cut strips on the chappati,pull all the strips together and curl it into a round,Apply some oil on the dough ball and set aside on a oiled plate(See picture).Make every dough ball the same way.After that cover the plate with some damp cloth and set it aside for about 1 hour.

After 1 hour take the dough and make it to a slightly thicker Parata.

Heat a tawa on high heat and place the parata over the pan and cook the parata on both sides by applying oil till it is golden brown.

Make some 5 parata the same way,then stack them together and crush them with your both hands vigorously till the flakes separates.

Put them in a Hot case and repeat the process until everything is done.

Serve them hot with your favorite curry.

I love this, the whole presentation... will try it out pretty soon. I've never found a good paratha recipe before, this looks easy and really flaky.

Is there a way to make these parathas without milk, using curd or water or butter instead?

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

Yes...You could use Curd+Water and knead the dough and follow the same procedure...Give the dough a resting time of 1-2 hours.It will probably give you the same result.I haven't tried this...Hope you try and tell me how it turned out...

Hai, Is there anyway to.Store the dough to do it later, I have 2 small kids, and it is difficult to do the procedure evrrytime

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@Hemapriya NatesanYou can store this in a air tight container in fridge and use it whenever you need. It will keep well for 2 to 3 days
