Tip: My mother’s tip on making nice and fluffy chappati’s or paratha’s.

1.       Do make a sligthly soft dough.

2.       It should be well kneaded.

3.       The first cooking on the first side should be hardly for a 40-50 secs.

4.       Cooking on the second side should be for a min or two until the brown spots appear.

5.       Then cook the chappati’s or paratha’s.

6.       Do not turn frequently

7.       Do not apply too much pressure.

8.       For Paneer Paratha or any stuffed paratha, it is best to first stretch lightly the stuffed dough ball in your hand so that the mixture is spread out evenly.
