The left over dough ideally should by finished same day and not stored for long. So, here is a quick rescue recipe to use the left over dough – Namkeen Paratha.

Preparation time: no preparation required
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Yield: 4 paratha
- wheat flour dough: left over dough or freshly prepared
- red chilli powder: 1/2 tsp
- turmeric powder: 1/4 tsp
- coriander powder: 1/2 tsp
- garam masala: 1/4 tsp (optional)
- coriander leaves: 1 tbsp, chopped
- salt: 1/2 tsp or according to taste
- oil: for frying paratha
- Make a dough ball to roll paratha. Dust some dry flour and flatten it to almost half the size of the intended paratha.
- Spread a little oil on the paratha and then add the little spices – red chilli powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, salt and coriander leaves for stuffing. Spread it on paratha with finger or spoon. Use the spices less or more according to your taste.
- Gather all sides of paratha and pack as a stuffed ball ready to roll paratha.
- Dust some dry flour and roll the dough ball with a rolling pin gently to make parathas.
- Place the paratha on hot tava/flat pan on medium flame. Flip the side when it’s cooked 1/4th. Apply oil/ghee.
- Flip on the other side and again apply ghee/oil. Flip the sides to make sure, paratha is cooked evenly and become crunchy.
The amount of spices are for 4 parathas. Use a portion for each paratha. Do not add too much of the spices as you want only a little flavour in the parathas. Too much of salt or chilli will not taste good.
