Square Paratha/ Chapati

They say breakfast should be the heaviest meal of the day, giving u a boost of energy at the very start of a day. If u wanna follow these nutritionists “Paratha” is the best thing to have in the morning.  Fried Chapatis or flat bread called Paratha in urdu, is an important part of traditional South Asian breakfast. It can be made of wheat flour / white flour or mixture of both. You can have it with any side dish u want, or with simple omelette, tea/ Pickle. So if u want any change from normal routine try this!! :) Traditionally it is made from ghee, but oil can also be used. They are mostly round in shape. But for a change you can make them square shaped :) kids & even adults will enjoy it :) It makes eating more pleasurable, when you are not serving the same old round chapatis like everyday lol.  Here is the recipe.

Ingredients:

For dough:

Whole flour                                            3 cups

Salt                                                        Pinch

Then roll out this peras/ ball into a small circle as for usual chapati like this:

Spread some flour on the surface while rolling so that the dough doesn't stick to surface. Roll it out gently into the required size & sprinkle some salt & oil/butter/ghee on it. Now take one side & fold inwards into the center & from one end layering on the other like this:
