The Wonderchef Ebony Roti Tawa is perfect to make Paper Parathas with as less oil used as possible.
- Step 1: Add a spoon of ajwain to the cup of flour. Now slowly add water while mixing the flour by hand to make dough. Make sure to add the water very slowly while mixing to make the dough. This will take some time so be patient. Make sure to keep the dough soft. Add some oil with your fingers, and cover it with a lid to keep it on the side for the next ten minutes.
- Step 2: While the dough is off to the side, add chopped coriander, chopped chilies, salt as per taste, laal mirch powder, coriander powder, and finally a spoonful of ajwain. Mix the filling thoroughly.
- Step 3: Now take the dough out, and now add a small amount of dough to a rolling pin. Make the roti very thin in layers. Make two very thin chapatis out of the rolling pin.
- Step 4: Add the filling onto one of the thin chapatis evenly. After that is done, place the other chapati on top evenly, and make sure that there is no unevenness to it. Press it by hand first, and then press it with a rolling pin. Make as many parathas as necessary here.
- Step 5: Place the Tawa on the stove, and set it to medium heat. Brush a light amount of oil onto the Tawa right before placing the paratha. Flip the paratha once brown dots emerge on the top side of it.
- Step 6: Repeat Step 5 as many times as there are parathas to be made. Serve warm, with a side serving of curd.
