Wheat flour - 2 cups
Onion – 1 medium sized
Green chilies – 2-3
Salt – to taste
Ghee/ oil – 6 tablespoons
Take Wheatflour in a bog mixing bowl.
Finely chop the onions as fine as possible. This will help in binding the flour and will ensure that onions do not separate while rolling the parathas.
Finely chop the chilies.
Add chopped onions. Chilies, salt to taste and 2 tablespoon of ghee /oil in the bowl containing wheat flour.
Now mix all together. Add water, little at a a time and mix. Remember while mixing the onions may ooze out some water so add water very carefully. Make a semi soft dough.
Divide the dough into equal portions and roll them out into circular parathas by dusting some dry flour.
Heat a pan on gas and slow cook the parathas till both sides are done. Apply ghee ‘ oil before taking them off the pan.
Serve hot with Aloo sabzi.
Always serve hot...doesnot taste well when cold.
