Recipe Notes
  • Your dough should not be tight otherwise the layers won’t be visible after cooking.
  • Always roll the parathas very gently after making pleats, otherwise the layers won’t be visible clearly. For this, first tap the roll with the help of your palm and fingers, and then roll lightly with the rolling pin.
