Triangular Paratha

Bringing back my childhood memories… :) I was a bit irritating picky eater for whom mum used to run across the house just to make me eat 2-3 bites of anything. One thing I never refused to eat was a plate of triangular paratha with a dollop of achaar on side! And knowing my taste-bud, mum used to make those parathas every now and then.

I now understand how tedious it is to make such parathas… Rolling them out, applying ghee, folding them twice to make a triangle and then again rolling process!!! Ufff… I hardly prefer to get into that mood :P But ‘Maa’ is ‘Maa’!!! She never got tired of applying double-efforts in making one paratha, for me to eat substantial <3 Love you, Mum!!!



2 cups Wheat Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Cumin Seeds
Water, as required
1 tbsp Ghee + for roasting

triangular paratha


  1. Mix wheat flour and salt in a big bowl.
  2. Add ghee in it and rub into flour using your palms to form crumbles.
  3. Knead a soft dough by adding water as required.
  4. Cover with a damp cloth and keep aside for half hour.
  5. Divide the dough in 10-12 equal portions and roll them out as directed here.
  6. Pan roast them one by one by applying ghee until cooked equally on both sides.
  7. Serve hot with any everyday curry!



  • I have used ghee in flour to make it ‘khasta’ in texture.
  • You can also add kasoori methi or ajwain for extra flavors.
