  4. Coat it again with dusting flour and roll it out gently and give a circular shape like a regular thick roti or paratha.
  5. Place it on a heated tawa/griddle and cook on medium flame. When you see tiny bubbles rising on the surface, turn it over.

• Add spices per your taste buds.
• This paratha is perfect for vegan, just avoid spreading ghee on it.
