Now apply 1.5 tsp of this oil and flour mixture over the rolled roti /disc.
Fold the roti the way we make a paper fan or pleat a saree.
When completely folded, slightly stretch the folded dough and pull it lengthwise to give it a slight stretch.
Now roll it to make a circle.
Dust it with some dry flour and roll it gently to make paratha of medium thickness ,don’t roll it too thin,it should be medium thick
Now put the rolled paratha on a medium hot tawa/griddle and cook for a minute.
turn the side and cook till few brown spot appears on it.
. Apply some oil or ghee all over the paratha and flip the side.
Press paratha with a spatula and cook till it become golden in colour.
. Repeat the same process with other side too.
Remove from the tawa/griddle and crush it slightly from the sides with your hands or use a cloth
Serve hot with any curry of your choice.
Instead of wheat flour/atta you can also use refined flour/maida or multi grain flour to make this as malabar paratha.
