Maida / All purpose flour - 4 cups
Water - 1 cup
Cooking Oil - 1 tbsp ( for kneading)
Salt - 1 tsp
Sugar - 1/2 tsp
Cooking Oil - 1/2 cup ( to cook parota)
Mix maida, sugar, salt, 1 tbsp oil and enough amount of water and make a smooth dough. Spread 1 tbsp of oil over the dough and cover the dough with a damp cloth and keep it aside for about 2 hours. After an interval of 2 hours, Take a small portion of dough in your hand and Keep the dough in between the index finger and thumb and press it. You will get a lemon size ball from the dough. Repeat the same process until you finish the dough. Again cover those balls with a damp cloth and leave it for one more hour. More the time we leave the dough undisturbed, more easy for us to roll out parotas and parotas will be soft too.
Now take a lemon size dough, apply oil in your hands and the rolling board and pin. Now spread the dough as thin as possible and as large in size as possible. Take the dough from one of its corner side and fold like saree pleats and make a spiral shape from the pleats shape. Repeat the same for the whole dough and keep it aside for 15 more minutes. After 15 minutes, take the dough and just press it by your greased hand till you get a disc shape. Do not roll it out with the rolling pin.
Side Dish: Chicken Chalna, Veg Kuruma and non veg gravies.
I followed the recipe step by step from Kamala's blog. She has explained in a detailed manner with the pictures how to cook parota and really it came out too good when i executed the process in my kitchen.
