mama's sweet whole wheat fried flatbread

course: breakfast, dessert, bread
yields: 2-3 flatbreads


for dough
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup lukewarm water, as needed
1/2 tablespoon ghee
1/2 cup whole wheat flour, for dusting
for filling
3/4 cup fine sugar, to taste
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 to 5 minutes, to make a semi-soft dough. Cover again and rest for 10 to 15 minutes.

for dusting
Using a knife, divide the dough into even 2 to 3 balls. Dust some flour over the worktop and roll out each ball into 4x4 inch circles. Place 3 to 4 tablespoons of sugar in the center, turn into a ball again by holding each side of the circle and pinching together. Dust some more flour and roll out 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 a minute. Brush ghee over the underside too. Use a tong to rotate and make both sides toasty with golden brown spots.

Optional: Toast on low heat for 5 to 7 minutes for extra crispness.

Serve warm.
