Ingredients

  • 1 Cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 Tsp ghee (clarified butter)
  • 1/2 Tsp ajwain (carom seed)
  • Warm water to make a dough
  • 3/4 Tsp salt
  • Oil to fry

Instructions

  • Take a mixing bowl and combine flour, ghee, salt and ajwain seed.
  • Make a soft dough using warm water. Add a little water after using a half cup. Keep it aside for 10 minutes.
  • Heat a griddle on medium flame.
  • Divide the dough into equal parts. I could make 5 parathas with this quantity.
  • Roll out a portion in 6″ circle. Apply a little ghee and shape in a triangle. (First, fold the circle into a half circle, then again fold it to make a quarter circle.)
  • Now roll this triangle into 6″ paratha and place it on the heated griddle.
  • Cook on both side by applying oil or ghee. Cook until golden brown.
  • Serve hot ajwain paratha with any of your favorite company like curd, pickle, tea or potato sabji and enjoy.

Notes

  1. Use oil if not comfortable using ghee.
  2.  This paratha is very simple and easy.
  3. Normally in ajwain paratha, we don't add any other ingredient as ajwain itself has a strong taste.
