How to Make Kootoo Paratha

  • Mix atta, potatoes and salt together, add water and knead into pliable dough.
  • Cover and leave to rest for at least 30 minutes.
  • Break dough into 8 pieces and shape each into round, smooth balls, dusting with atta, if it sticks.
  • Roll into circles of 1/4 cm or 1/8 inch thickness.
  • You will have to roll by patting with hand.
  • If you want to roll with a rolling pin, increase the proportion of potatoes.
  • Heat the tava, (to the point when a drop of water sizzles and then evaporates).
  • Place one parantha on the tawa, lower flame to medium and when edges start lifting slightly, make a trail of ghee along the outer edge of the parantha.
  • When the underside is crisp and dark, smear ghee on the uncooked surface, increase flame and turn the parantha upside-down.
  • Cook on the other side too.
  • It is ready to be served when dark and crisp on both sides.
