Parathas are the shallow-fried version of chapatis. This recipes make crunchier and less-flaky parathas than those I buy from the store. Serve with cinnamon-sugar for a sweet treat or with curries as a scooping bread.

  • Knead dough until smooth and elastic, about 7 minutes. Cover with a damp cloth; let rest for 30 minutes.

  • Divide dough into 8 equal portions. Shape into smooth balls; lightly flatten. Dust with flour and roll into thin circles about 1/16-inch thick and 7 inches in diameter.

  • Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Fry each dough circle until golden, about 2 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.

Cook's Note:

Use any dried herbs of your choosing.
