Crunchy finger Paratha



Crunchy finger Paratha-As strange as the name may sound that’s exactly what these crispy crunchy paratha are. They are made from with wholemeal wheat flour, savoury in taste and delicious broken into fingers and enjoyed with dhal or just as a snack with tea and pickles.

Ingredients:

2 cups whole wheat flour
3 tablespoons sunflower oil
1 teaspoon salt
Water to make dough.
Sun flower oil for frying

Method:


1. In a bowl add the flour, salt and the oil.
2. Using the tips of your fingers gently rub the oil into the flour to make a bread crumb type mixture.
3. Add a little water and make stiff dough. Cover and leave for 30 mins.
4. After half an hour knead the dough and divide into 12 balls
5. Roll out each paratha about 5 inches in diameter
6. Starting about 1cm from top edge of paratha cut a vertical slit down the paratha leaving 1 cm edge at the bottom edge too. Cut 3 more slits. When you pick the paratha up it should still be in one piece. Repeat for rest of dough .


7. Heat the oil and fry paratha on medium heat till golden brown. Drain on kitchen paper and store in air tight container.

NB-These paratha should be crunchy and crispy.
Serve with dhal or pickles.
