Warm Butter Paratha   

Makes 2

Cooking & Prep Time: 30 mins plus 15 minutes standing



75g/3oz Plain Flour

50g/2oz Melted butter

teasp Salt

approx  90ml/3fl.oz. Water

Extra Flour for dusting




1. Place the flour in a large mixing bowl, add the melted butter and salt and stir.


2. Add most of the water and knead well to form a medium soft dough, adding a little more water or flour as necessary. Knead for 5  minutes.  Place it back into the bowl, cover with clingfilm and set aside for 20 minutes.


3. Divide the mixture into two and roll out one piece into a circle about 15cm/5-inches in diameter.


4. Brush the circle with melted butter, fold into half, so it looks like a "D" then brush with more melted butter or ghee then fold the D in half again so it looks like a triangle.


5. Roll it out into to  about 3mm/1/8th inch in thickness. Repeat with the remaining piece of dough

6. Heat a heavy frying pan until hot (do not add any oil or butter to the pan) then add a paratha and cook for about 30 seconds. Brush the upper side with melted butter then turn and cook the buttered side for 30 seconds whilst you brush the top with melted butter. 

7. Continue to cook as above for a total of 1-2 minutes, turning frequently. Repeat with the second paratha. Serve hot.
