To make the Paranthas
Take the Parantha dough. Mix well. Make medium sized balls from the dough. Make small balls from the stuffing mix. Take a dough ball. Make a cup. Stuff it with the filling mix. Close well. Roll to a slightly thick roti. Dust with maida. Similarly make all the Paranthas.
Heat a tava. Keep the flame on sim. Take one stuffed parantha. Cook on both sides to a golden colour. Drizzle the mix of oil and ghee around. When golden specks appear, flip the parantha and smear little mix of oil and ghee. Take off the parantha from the tava.Transfer the parantha to a plate. Similarly make all the Paranthas in this manner. Serve with thick curds and pickle of your choice.
1) Smear some Amul butter on the hot parantha for that extra taste.
2) Can add some grated Paneer to the stuffing mix.
3) After making each parantha, clean the tava with a kitchen tissue. The tava will be clean.
4) Make the filling nice and thick.
5) Cut the Paranthas into wedges and serve.
