Anyways..Paranthas means lots of oil,ghee & calorie :( ...but wat to do...they r so yummy that i forget all ma diets wen having it...& used to have it straight from the tava...i think that's the better way of eating those...!!
This can be made thin or thick, according to your taste. My mom makes thin and I loves it a bit thick.Both are tasty though.
White Flour /Maida 2 cups
Whole wheat flour/Atta 1 cup
Water required to form the dough
You can use any combination of flour to make the dough. either only whole wheat flour or add both the flours equally ; depends on your taste & how health concious you are.
Prepare the dough using the above ingredients except the ghee.
Make balls of equal size with this dough.
Roll on to a normal roti.
Spread ghee & dust flour on top
Now fold from all the four sides of the roti until it turns to a square shaped one;just like the picture below:
Heat griddle & cook chappathi on it until crispy. You can brush oil if u wish. Once it is cooked, you can see the layers inside gets separated easily.
