The course you are on…
Make it your own
And don’t foret to make someone happy on the way.
Here’s how I did it. I made parthas for family and friends
some atta (whole wheat flour)
a pinch of salt
some water to bring the flour to the right consistency to knead it
mustard or sunflower oil for the flour mixture
some sunflower oil to fry the parathas
and optional – fenugreek leaves and carom seeds added to the mixture
Knead all the ingredients well. Make small portions
Flatten each in the palm of the hand and fold into a triangular shape. Roll one out. Spread a little oil in a iron frying pan and fry it, turning over periodically until it looks fully cooked.
Do the same with each one of the portions individually, adding a little oil to the pan each time until all the flour has been used up
Eat hot – by itself or as an accompaniment to lentils, yoghurt, vegetables or meat.
