Paratha- Flaky Indian Flatbread
adapted from Gimme Delicious
1½ cup unbleached all purpose flour
¼ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon oil
½ cup lukewarm water
1. In a bowl mix the flour, salt, and oil. Add about ½ cup of water to make dough add remaining water as needed to make smooth and flexible dough. Knead the dough on a lightly greased surface. Cover the dough and keep aside for at least 15 minutes.
2. Knead the dough again and divide into 6 equal parts. Spread about ½ tablespoon of butter onto each piece and roll out. Now fold the parts on top of each other and let rest for about 5 minutes so that it can relax.
3. Roll out each piece and place one by one on a hot pan. Don't grease the pan because the paratha is already greased. Leave each paratha on medium heat for 2 minutes and flip and allow to cook for another minute, until browned spots appear. Serve with curry.
