Recipe will make 4 Paratha.
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon oil
- Approx. 1/3 cup lukewarm water
- 1/3 cup almonds coarsely grind
- 1/3 cup walnuts coarsely grind
- 2 tablespoon coconut powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup whole wheat flour for rolling the Paratha
- Approx. 1-1/2 tablespoons oil for cooking the Paratha
- 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.
- For the filling mix the almonds, walnuts coconut, cinnamon, and sugar, set aside.
- Knead the dough again and divide into 4 equal parts.
- 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.
- Let them settle for 3 to 4 minutes before rolling.
- 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.
- First lightly roll the filled ball in dry whole-wheat flour.
- 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.
- Place the Paratha over the skillet. After a few seconds you will see the Paratha change color and puff in different places.
- 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.
- Flip again and press with the spatula making sure the Paratha is golden-brown on both sides.
- Sweet Paratha can be served hot or at room temperature. Paratha can be kept at room temperature for about week.
