Ingredients
 

  • 3 cups All Purpose Flour – Plain Flour
  • 1 tbsp White Sugar – Regular Sugar – Granulated Sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 tbsp Clarified Butter
  • Water For kneading
  • ¼ cup Oil For soaking and roasting

Instructions
 

  • In a mixing bowl, combine all-purpose flour, sugar, salt, and clarified butter.
  • Mix it well until the flour turns moist and holds shape. Then add water and start kneading the dough. Make a soft and smooth dough.
  • Now add oil to the dough, cover the dough and set it aside to rest for one hour.
  • After one hour, punch the dough and knead again until it absorbs all the oil.
  • Take a medium-sized ball out of the dough and place it in a bowl. Add oil and soak the dough again for 1 hour.
  • Now, take the ball and place it on the rolling board. Start rolling it gently and spread it as thin as you can.
  • Once you have rolled it thin, cut strips out of it using a sharp knife. Bring all the strips together and roll them into a spiral. Make sure that all the strips are whole.
  • Roll the dough again into a thick layer and place it on a  greased hot pan. Roast it on a medium flame to cook one side well.
  • Then flip it over and apply 1/2 teaspoon of oil. Cook it nicely till both sides turn golden brown.
  • Take the Parotta and crush it gently so that its layers separate.
  • Serve your Indian Traditional Multi-Layered Flatbread from Kerala – Parotta with hot spicy curry and pickle.

NOTES

  • You can also use oil instead of clarified butter before kneading the dough.
  • This recipe requires 2 hours 15 minutes of preparation time, whereas the cooking time is 30 minutes.
RECIPE VARIATIONS:

SERVE WITH:

You can serve the Parotta hot with coconut-based Kurma or any other Indian Curry Based dish. Parotta also tastes good with pickles and tea.
