Hi All,
Coming about this post,

To make the Paratha:

Make balls of the dough (of size of a big lemon). Roll the dough ball into small  circles ( about the size of your palm). Use the dry flour to roll easily. Fill in the stuffing and seal all sides with the dough (make sure the stuffing is cold). Roll this stuffed ball into circles of about 10 cm diameter.

Roast the paratha on a hot griddle. Apply about a tsp of olive oil and roast both sides.

Serve hot parathas  accompanied by pickle and curds.
