  • Cast iron tawa
  • Wooden spoon



  • Heat ghee in a skillet, add makhana and roast till golden or until crispy. Once its crispy and not chewy, that’s the right stage. Switch off and cool down.
  • Transfer to a mixer jar and grind it to a fine powder.
  • In another mixing bowl take all other ingredients (except oil) along with makhana powder.
  • First mix well with a spoon, then add water and knead it to a soft pliable dough. Allow it to rest for 15mins at least.
  • Then knead again and form lemon sized balls.
  • Take a ball and start rolling. Dust flour if needed to avoid sticking.
  • Roll to thin parathas. Roll the rest of the parathas too and keep it ready.
  • Heat a dosa tawa, drizzle oil and then carefully transfer the paratha.
  • Cook until small bubbles start to appear, then flip to the other side. Drizzle little oil/ghee and cook until brown spots appear here and there. Flip again if needed.
  • Serve hot.
