Parantha Recipe

Parantha is a very famous dish made of wheat flour and is a North Indian specialty. In North India there is a Parantha street in every nook and corner. It is not a street food but due to its popularity it is sold in big restaurants as well as on the roadside. It is prepared in firewood style with coal burning in a big duct and the parantha stuck on the corners to get the aroma and taste typical of North Indian parantha. At home a griddle is enough for making paranthas.


  • 2 cups Wheat Flour

  • 2 tsp Oil or ghee (Clarified Butter)

  • 1 tsp Chili powder (Paprika)

  • Salt and water as required


  • A Rolling board or your kitchen platform

  • A Rolling pin
