Triangle Paratha

Triangle paratha or multi layer paratha is an easy flatbread and great for lunch box as they stay soft for long time. This paratha doesn’t have any stuffing and is made with just few simple ingredients. Don’t worry about getting the triangle shape right, just get the folds right and the rolling pin will do the rest.

Whole wheat flour – 2 cups, plus extra for dusting
Oil – 2 tbsp for dough, plus extra to fry the parathas
Ghee (Clarified butter) – 2 tbsp
Salt – to taste
Water – approximately ¾ cup


  1. Take the flour and salt in a large bowl. Add oil and mix together
  2. Slowly add water and knead together to form a soft pliable dough. Cover with a damp tea towel and set aside for 30 minutes
  3. Knead the dough again and divide into 7-8 equal balls
  4. Roll a ball of dough into a circle (approximately 4 inch). Rub ghee over it and dust with some flour
  5. Fold it to form a semi-circle. Rub clarified butter on the semicircle and dust with some flour
  6. Fold again to form a triangle
  7. Roll the triangle carefully to form a thin triangle
  8. Heat a griddle or fry pan. Place the triangle paratha gently on the griddle and let it cook for 1-2 minutes
  9. Flip over and cook on the other side. Apply 1 tsp oil
  10. Flip again and gently press using a spatula or wide spoon. Apply some oil and flip again
  11. Cook both the sides until they are done completely.
  12. Serve hot with side dish of your choice or simply some pickle and yogurt


  • You may replace clarified butter with oil while folding
  • You may add a tsp of cumin seeds while kneading the dough. I personally prefer these parathas plain
