Parotta

Parotta is a kerala roti….for every occasion and if any guests come this is a main roti.
Just it is having some procedures……my hubby and kids are parotta lovers……..so I thought to make it at home…….its better to make in home……here comes the home made parotta……




















Ingredients:

4c Maida
2 Large eggs
2tsp Sugar
2tsp Baking powder
Salt
½c Oil
Water
Ghee for applying


















Method:

1.In a bowl put maida,baking powder,sugar and salt.
2.Add slightly beaten egg and water and start kneading.
3.Add oil in between and knead well for 10 mins till smooth dough is obtained.
4.Now cover this dough with a wet cloth and allow to rest for 2 to 3 hrs.
5.After to 3 hrs just knead the dough and make medium sized balls.
6.And let this rest on the oiled counter for another half hour covered with wet cloth.
7.After 30 mins with a rolling pin flatten the ball into a very thin sheet.
8.Make fleets on this sheet how we put fleets on a sari.
9.Now catch both ends in both hands like a rope and beat this on the counter to make this to a thin rope.
10.Now roll this to a wheel shape as shown below.Do the same with all the balls.













11.Let this also rest for another 15 mins covered with wet cloth.
12.Now flatten each roll with hand or a rolling pin.
13.Heat a tawa and cook each parottas.Apply ghee.
14.Keep 3 to 4 cooked parottas together and just beat in between the hands while the parottas are hot.(like clapping hands).This is to make layers in the parottas.
15.Serve hot with meat curries or vegetable curries.

Please can you indicate how much water to add?Is the water hot or cold?
Also tell me if beaten egg need to be mixed with water before adding to maida?
I am asking the questions because when I tried first time the dough sheet is tearing and I am not able to flatten into thin sheet.Also I found that while trying to flatten the wheel Iit is shrinking to a small to a small circle on the frying pan.

can't give a proper measurement of water because while kneading we have to pour the enough water for the dough to b soft and use normal water ....and the dough should b kneaded well for 10 to 15 mins thn only it will b soft ...the dough should b kept for resting for some hours other wise it will shrink as u said...it doesn't get correct for the first time....it wil take few attempts to get it right.....
