This is a sweet style paratha recipe is perfect for breakfast, dessert, or tea-time treats.
Makes 4-5 paratha. 

150g chapati flour
5 tsp golden caster sugar
ghee/oil of choice

– In a large bowl, add the flour. Add some water, a little at a time, and stop when you have got a nice soft dough.

– Once the dough has come together, knead it for 2 minutes until smooth. Cover the dough and let it rest for 10 minutes.

– Take a lime-sized portion of dough and roll it into a ball.

– Lightly coat the dough in flour. Then, use a rolling pin to flatten the ball into a palm-sized circle.

– Add 1 tsp sugar to the centre of the circle and pinch the sides together to seal it. 

– Roll the dough in some flour and then flatten with a rolling pin.

– Add the paratha to a hot pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Once the paratha has puffed up, lightly spread some oil/ghee onto both sides and cook for 1 minute on each side until golden and crispy.

– Repeat the process with the rest of the dough.

Allow the paratha to cool slightly before you tuck in as the sugar will be very hot!
