Layer Paratha


2 cups wheat flour
1/2 tsp  baking powder
1tblsp sugar
luke warm Milk-1/2 cup
Salt ½ tsp
Refined Oil/ ghee


Mix the flour, salt and sugar well. Now, add 2tblsp ghee to it. Mix well. Then slowly add the luke warm milk and make a dough. Knead well until smooth & make a stiff dough.
Keep it covered under a wet muslin cloth. (This is to avoid the top of the dough drying up)
Divide into 8 equal portions and form into smooth balls.
Dip your dough ball in flour and roll out to a 6″ disc.
Roll out as thinly as you can .Coat one side with oil and then form pleats (Start forming pleats from one side). 

Now twist the roll in to a tight circle.

Flatten bread only on one side to preserve the layers. Now gently press it by a rolling pin to a thick round layer paratha.

 Cook on a very hot tava, brushing both sides with ghee. All the skins to become crunchy and keep it on the tava till both sides have turned golden brown.
Stack, and crush the sideways every few hot paratha so that it will separate the layers.
Goes well with black channa curry & egg curry.
