Paratha roti


2 cups flour
1 egg optional
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar optional
2 tbsp margarine
1/4 cup warm water
oil

Knead a smooth dough with flour, egg, salt and margarine. Use just enough water to make the dough little at a time. Make about 8 balls. Put about 2 tbsp oil and rest the dough I rested it for about 6 hours. There are a few ways to roll the dough.

Roll the dough thin then hold two sides of the dough like a rope and keep moving in a circular motion hitting it on the board. Then roll into a spiral and tuck the end making a ball. Leave it to rest in a little oil for another few hours I left it for about 2 hours.

Then roll it thin the dough will keep shrinking which is fine. Cook the rotis in high heat if it burning too much lower it to medium high heat. Put 1/2 teaspoon of oil on the pan and place the roti, when the bubbles appear press the roti. Turn the roti when it is slightly golden and cook the other side. Keep each roti on top of the other. Stack the rotis and hit the sides a little which will make the rotis flaky.

This roti goes well with many dishes, I like serving with crab curry. Stack the parathas and when it is cool to touch, place it in a foil wrap and then roll it, heat before using if necessary it will be soft.
