To Knead the Dough:

  • In a mixer bowl add whole wheat flour, salt, 1 tsp oil, and water 1 cup.
  • Now, lock the hook knob and start the mixer at speed 2 first and keep alternating between speed 2 and speed 4 as the dough starts forming.
  • Stop the mixer and scrape the dry flour from the sides of the bowls using a spatula.
  • Start the mixer and add the remaining ¼ cup of water slowly, 2 Tbsp at a time in the bowl. 
  • Now, add oil to make the dough less sticky and keep mixing at low speed until dough forms.
  • Cover and rest the dough for 10 minutes in a bowl, and after 10 minutes, the dough is ready to make the parathas.

To Roll Triangle Paratha:

  • Take one piece of the dough ball and roll it using the dry flour. 
  • Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a  5-6” circle. 
  • Drizzle the surface with a few drops of oil, spread it evenly with the fingers. 
  • Now, sprinkle some flour.
  • Fold the circle in half so that the oil is on the inside.
  • Drizzle the surface with a few drops of oil, spread it evenly with the fingers, and sprinkle the flour. 
  • Fold the semicircle in half again to form a triangle shape.

  • Roll the dough back and forth with the rolling pin to maintain the triangle shape. 

To Cook/Roast the Triangle Paratha:

  • Heat a tawa/griddle over medium-high heat. 
  • Once the tawa is hot, place the rolled-out paratha on the tawa and cook until the bottom of the paratha turns lighter about 1 minute.
