I spent way too much time the night before Thanksgiving making a stack of parathas to take to a potluck. Roll out chapati dough, brush with ghee, fold in half, brush with ghee, fold, crimp. roll out further. Later I discovered that after my parathas had been sitting for a while, I could stretch them further with my hand.
Still, I thought they were too doughy, not flaky enough.
So I did what I've been doing more and more these days: went on YouTube to look for a recipe. When it comes to cooking, video teaches better than words.
