Wheat Parotta


Parotta is one of the most famous dinner for Tuticorin, from the evenings till late night you can find atleast a single parotta stall in each and every nook and corner of the street. There are 4 to 5 hotels, were these parotta’s are very famous and each of them make their own style of Salna for this parotta. Whenever I am too my hometown, most of the time it would parotta for our dinner. These parotta’s are prepared with all-purpose flour, but I have tried making it with Wheat flour.

Wheat parotta is good compared to all-purpose flour/maida in healthwise, but the taste wise I would opt for all-purpose flour parotta. Soon will update the recipe for the other parotta, let me share the recipe…

  • Wheat flour/Atta – 3 cups
  • Salt to taste

  • Pour water little by little and start kneading the dough, when it’s almost done.
  • Pour a tbsp of oil and knead for 5 mins or until the flour absorbs the oil.
  • Pour another tbsp of oil and knead for another 5 to 10 mins, and drizzle a tsp of oil over the dough and let is rest for 5 mins.
  • Take a small portion of the dough, roll it to a ball (lemon size), and keep it aside. Continue this process for the whole dough.

Recently I have heard from few of friends about Online Grocery in Chennai (BigBasket) and their perfect home delivery and so too tired out and felt their home delivery was too good and each reached me on the right time. There was many such items which we get rarely in stores. I too got few millets like pearl millet and Foxtail millet which I get rarely in my neighborhood shops. Not only groceries but they also got meat, beauty products and readymade snacks. Give a try with BigBasket and make your monthly grocery from a place. Also now they have started their service in Chennai.

The dish was delicious and sweet, kids love this dish to the core. This can also be attempted as a salted or spicy version, but since the first time I have given a try with the sweet version. A healthy breakfast or a perfect snack for kids when they are from school. Let us move on to the recipe…
