Sweet Paratha (Grilled Flatbread) Recipe by ManjulaIngredients:

Dough

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • Approx. 1/3 cup lukewarm water

Filling

  • 1/3 cup almonds coarsely grind
  • 1/3 cup walnuts coarsely grind
  • 2 tablespoon coconut powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/3 cup sugar

Also need

  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour for rolling the Paratha
  • Approx. 1-1/2 tablespoons oil for cooking the Paratha

Method

  1. In a bowl mix the flour, salt, and oil. Add about 1/3 cup of water to make dough add remaining water as needed to make smooth and pliable dough. Knead the dough on a lightly greased surface. Cover the dough and keep aside for at least 15 minutes.
  2. For the filling mix the almonds, walnuts coconut, cinnamon, and sugar, set aside.
  3. Knead the dough again and divide into 4 equal parts.
  4. Roll the dough into 3 inch diameter circles. Place about 3 tablespoons filling mix in the center. Seal by pulling the edges of the rolled dough together to make a ball. Proceed to make all four balls.
  5. Let them settle for 3 to 4 minutes before rolling.
  6. Heat the skillet on medium high. Note: An iron skillet works best. To check if the skillet is hot enough, sprinkle a couple of drops of water on it. If the water sizzles right away, the skillet is ready.
  7. First lightly roll the filled ball in dry whole-wheat flour.
  8. Lightly press the ball on the sealed side and keep it on the topside when rolling. Roll the ball light handed in to about 7-inch circles. Whenever the dough sticks to the rolling pin or rolling surface, lightly sprinkle dry whole-wheat flour on both sides of the semi-rolled Paratha.
  9. Place the Paratha over the skillet. After a few seconds you will see the Paratha change color and puff in different places.
  10. 10. At this point flip the Paratha over. You should see some golden-brown spots on the topside. After a few seconds, spread about1 teaspoon of oil on the Paratha. Again, flip the Paratha and lightly press the puffed areas with a spatula.
  11. Flip again and press with the spatula making sure the Paratha is golden-brown on both sides.
  12. Sweet Paratha can be served hot or at room temperature. Paratha can be kept at room temperature for about week.
