plain whole wheat fried flatbread


for dough
3 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup lukewarm water, as needed
1 tablespoon ghee
1 cup whole wheat flour, for dusting
for toasting
1 tablespoon ghee


for dough
In a large bowl, add flour and salt. Gradually add water and mix with a spatula until stiffly combined. Cover with a lid and rest for 5 minutes at room temperature.

Add a tablespoon of ghee and knead, for 3-5 minutes, to make a semi-soft dough. Cover again and rest for 10-15 minutes.
for dusting
Using a knife, divide the dough into even 5-6 balls. Dust some flour over the worktop and roll out each ball into 4x4 inch circles. Brush ghee and sprinkle half a teaspoon of flour over. Tightly roll the dough up like cinnamon rolls. Rest for 3-5 minutes. Sprinkle some flour over the worktop and roll out each ball into 7x7 inch circles.
for toasting
Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Place a flatbread on it and cook it for half a minute. Brush some ghee over it and flip over the paratha. Cook it for 1/2 to 1 minute. Brush ghee over the underside too. Use a tong to rotate and make both sides toasty with golden brown spots. Serve hot.
