Recipe: Quick Vegan Paratha


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2/3 to 3/4 cup water (approximately)


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour and salt.
  2. Add the vegetable oil to the flour mixture.
  3. Gradually add water while mixing. Start with 2/3 cup of water and add more if needed. The goal is to form a soft and pliable dough.
  4. Knead the dough for about 3-5 minutes until it becomes smooth. Cover the dough with a clean cloth or plastic wrap and let it rest for 15-20 minutes.
  5. After resting, divide the dough into equal-sized portions and roll them into balls, about the size of golf balls.
  6. Take one dough ball and flatten it slightly with your palm.
  7. Roll the flattened dough ball into a thin circle on a lightly floured surface. You can use a rolling pin to do this. Aim for a thickness of about 1/8 inch (3 mm).
  8. Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium-high heat.
  9. Place the rolled-out dough circle onto the hot skillet. Cook for about 1-2 minutes, or until small bubbles begin to appear on the surface.
  10. Flip the paratha using a spatula and cook the other side. While cooking, you can add a drizzle of vegetable oil or vegan butter to both sides to make it flakier and tastier.
  11. Cook until both sides are golden brown and have a few brown spots. Press gently with a spatula to ensure even cooking.
  12. Remove the paratha from the skillet and place it on a plate. If desired, lightly brush it with more vegetable oil or vegan butter for extra flavor.
  13. Repeat the process with the remaining dough balls.
