Ajwain Paratha

Ingredients (Translation)

1 cup Wheat flour
Salt to taste
Ajwain (in powder form)
Water to make dough

Make dough using wheat flour, salt and water like usual for making chapatis.

Make small balls of the dough. Roll out one ball into a round chapati.

Now spread a little ghee over the chapati and sprinkle ajwain powder using a tea filter to spread evenly.

Now fold the chapati this way first...

Next fold it this way

The third fold

The final fold

Dip in flour and roll out again, maintaining the square shape.

When done, put it on the tava and spread a little ghee throughout rather than only sides. The paratha will start coming up like a puri. Turn it to cook the other side. When done, serve hot with pickle or any other side dish.

Although a bit long process, the taste would be excellent and parathas would be crisp.
