Ingredients
  

  • 1.5 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 4 Tsp Dried Mint Leaves
  • 5 Tbsp Oil
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Luke Warm Water

Instructions
 

  • First of all, in a mixing bowl combine salt and flour. Add one tablespoon of oil and knead it to form a smooth dough with the help of luke warm water.
  • Cover the dough and keep aside for 15 minutes.
  • Now divide the dough into 4 equal parts and flatten them in between your palm. Now spread some flour on the worktop, take one flatten ball and roll it into 6 - 7 inch diameter circle, with the help of rolling pin.
  • Apply oil with the help of a brush all over the paratha and sprinkle 1 teaspoon of crushed mint leaves and some flour on the top. 
  • Now you can make pleats by two methods: 
    a) Cut thin stripes of the rolled paratha with the help of knife/pizza cutter and gather all the strips one on the top of another.
    b) Making pleats of the rolled paratha just like Chinese fan.
  • After making pleats, apply little oil all over the pleats and stretch them. Start folding from one edge and make a roll. Again sprinkle some flour and  roll into round parathas of about 4- 5 inch diameter.
  • Heat the tava and place the paratha on it. Flip it when one side is partly cooked and apply oil on this side. Now again flip it and apply oil on this side too.
  • Cook them  till the parathas are golden brown in colour by flipping 2-3 times on each side. Cook all the parathas similarly. Give them a crush in between your palm once or twice, so that all the layers are clearly visible. Serve them hot and enjoy with the curry or chutney of your choice.

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 that, first tap the roll with the help of your palm and fingers, and then roll lightly with the rolling pin. 
  • You can make the pleated rolls few hour in advance and then roll and fry the paratha at the time of eating. Just keep the pleated rolls covered with damp kitchen towel to avoid them drying.
