Triangle paratha step-by-step recipe with photos.
Triangle paratha (also called multi-layer paratha or plain paratha) is an easy-to-make flatbread and great for the lunchbox as they stay soft for a long time. This paratha doesn’t have any stuffing and is made with just one main ingredient – whole wheat flour (atta or chapati flour).
To make triangle paratha, I combine whole wheat flour (atta), salt and oil. I add water and knead into a soft dough. I let the dough rest for some time before starting making the parathas. I pinch out some dough and roll it into a disc. I apply some ghee onto it, dust some flour (atta), and fold into a semi-circle. I again apply ghee, dust some more flour (atta), and fold it to form a triangle. I then roll it out into a thin triangle. I cook it in a hot tawa or griddle until completely done.
Don’t worry about getting the triangle shape right, just get the folds right and the rolling pin will do the rest.
This paratha is similar to lachha paratha, with the only main difference being the way the folds are done to create layers. Click here for lachha paratha recipe.
Over the last few months, I have started making sourdough bread. I have a sourdough starter made with bread flour and a sourdough starter made with atta. I add some atta sourdough starter while kneading the dough for this paratha and let it sit overnight at room temperature for fermentation. This makes the paratha very soft and much more healthier. Do give it a try.
