All purpose flour :1 cup

  • cover this dough with a kitchen towel and let rest for about 1/2 an hour 
  • Transfer the dough to a working surface and knead well for about 10- 15  minutes.
  • Spray some oil and roll the dough into a log 
  • Divide this log into 4 equal portions and oil each portion . oil the working surface as well .
  • start rolling out each portion as thin as possible and oil the layer .
  •  sprinkle some dry flour and carefully lift up the layer to make small folds 
  • next lift up the folded layers on both ends and start stretching by gently patting the layers.
  • swirl this up and tuck in the end and  shape the parottas using your palm or a rolling pin
  • pan fry using a little oil until golden brown on both sides
