I bought a Tortilla maker (click here to see what it is ) , just after our wedding thinking I’ll make roti’s out of it easily. I was never able to make perfect roti’s using it how many ever times I tried with different consistency dough. Finally I just kept it away. After my son was born , I was still able to manually roll the dough. After my daughter everything became very difficult. Then my husband suggested this idea to use the tortilla maker as a press to flatten the dough. So these days I use it to flatten the roti’s. If you don’t have a tortilla maker, you can also buy something like this to press your roti dough. Of course they are a little hard than the normal roti’s ,especially when you take it for lunch next day, but we are used to it now.
The below method will help you make fresh and quick paratha at home. I love methi so I get fresh methi from Indian store and separate the leaves during weekend and will store it in the fridge. Morning before I leave to work will knead the dough. Evening will make it fresh.
