Triangle Paratha | Triangle Roti | Plain Paratha

Triangle paratha or Plain paratha -- A very popular, yummy, triangle-shaped layered paratha/flat bread.  It is a common breakfast item and does not need any special side dish to go with it, just any pickle will do.  There are different types of parathas depending on the stuffing used like aloo paratha, mooli paratha, gobi paratha, paneer paratha, peas paratha, methi paratha etc.

  • Wheat Flour - 2 cups
  • Oil - 2 tbsp
  • Salt - A generous pinch

How To Prepare Triangle Paratha:

  • Take wheat flour, salt and oil in a bowl and mix well.  Add water little by little and make a soft pliable dough similar to the dough we make for chapatis.  It should not be hard or too soft.  Keep it aside for an hour.
  • Make equal lemon-sized balls out of the dough.
  • Using a little flour for dusting, roll out each ball of dough into a small circle.  Add a few drops of oil on the surface and spread evenly, fold it into a semicircle.

  • Apply a little oil and spread evenly and fold it again to form a triangle.

  • Roll out the triangle gently to desired thickness.  Dust a little flour if it sticks to the board.

  • Heat a tawa and add the triangle roti on it.  Once bubbles start appearing, add a little oil on top and spread evenly.  Flip the roti to the other side and apply a little oil.  Cook both the sides well until brown spots start appearing and remove onto a plate.  Repeat the process for the rest of the dough.
  • Serve with any pickle, plain curd or gravy of your choice.
