Parathas are very similar to make than the more common chappati. They taste even better as they have layers of ghee (clarified butter) in them giving the bread a rich flaky texture. They are very easy to make as they are an unleavened bread. You need a bit of patience as you need to let the dough rest for 30 minutes before using.

They don’t keep well once cooked. So The recipe here is enough for 6 parathas. If you don’t need that many in one go, the uncooked dough will keep in the fridge for a couple of days as long as you store it in a plastic bag. We had these with my veggie Spinach and Cauliflower Curry.
