How to Make Kerala Parotta

  • Add all the ingredients together.
  • Mix well and then add lukewarm water, until the dough starts coming together. Let it rest for 10 min.
  • Divide the dough into small balls and start rolling each ball.
  • Roll it as thin as possible. It should become almost transparent.
  • Spread some melted butter/ghee on the surface of the dough and then start pleating.
  • Once you have pleated it all the way through, it forms into a small rope.
  • Pick up the rope at the ends and give it a little twist in the air - like a skipping rope.
  • Place it back on the counter and start rolling it starting from one end till the other end.
  • Once spiralled, give it a little press.
  • Now with a rolling pin, slightly roll it into a circle.
  • Don't press too hard and don't roll it too thin.
  • Place it in a skillet and roast it with some ghee/oil.
  • Once done turn it around and serve hot with a gravy side dish.
  • Vegetable korma goes very well with this.
