  • 2 cups all purpose flour (Maida)
  • 1 Egg white (optional)
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp Coconut oil

How to make Malabar Paratha:

  • Mix the flour, coconut oil, and sugar and salt with little water.
  • Knead well to make smooth dough.
  • Cover with wet muslin cloth and set aside for 2 hours.
  • Then take the dough, add little more oil and knead well once again.
    Now the dough should expand like elastic, when you pull it.
  • Make lemon sized balls out of the dough.
  • Roll out each ball into very thin flat round shape using a rolling pin.
  • Then roll from one end to the other to make a lengthy string.
  • Now roll the string spirally towards inside.
  • Then flatten it with your hands to join all the curves.
  • By doing this the paratha will become a single round shape with several spiral layers in it.
  • Now the paratha is ready to fry.
  • Repeat doing this with all the dough balls.
    Heat a tava and grease it with little oil.
  • Place the parathas in the hot tava and cook until both the sides are golden brown.
  • Dot with little oil on both sides in between the process.
  • Repeat this with all the parathas.
  • Malabar Paratha is ready to serve.
  • Serve hot.

I believe you can make great food with everyday ingredients even if you’re short on time and cost conscious. You just need to cook clever and get creative!
