Divide the mixture into balls about 5cm/2-inches in diameter and roll out each
ball into circles about 10cm/4-inches in diameter.
Brush each circle with oil/melted butter/ghee and dust lightly with
flour. Fold into half, so it looks like a "D" then brush with
more oil/melted butter/ghee and lightly dust again with flour.
Fold the “D” in half so it looks like a triangle then roll it out into
circles about 3mm/1/8th inch in thickness.
6. Heat a heavy frying pan until hot then add a paratha and cook for 30 seconds
only. Turn and brush the cooked side with oil/melted butter/ghee whilst cooking
the other side for 30 seconds.

brushing the top with oil/melted Butter/ghee, then turn once more and cook the
other side until golden brown and beginning to crisp. For best results, eat
straight from the pan!
