Doesn't the sugar seep out? I mean, when you heat up sugar, it gets hard isn't it? Is it supposed to be like that? Are you using icing sugar or just regular sugar? Thanks guys...

okay okay... hold on

dont sprinkle the sugar on the paratha... damn swami.

what chits is saying is the right way. go easy on the sides while rolling roti before n after the filling. indian sugar works best in those. these parathas will be little heavy than the normal, No icing sugar and no it wont get hard cos you are roasting the dough not the sugar directly. It ll melt inside and moisten the inner layer to give you the sweet taste of the parathas. thats why tastes best with spicey pickle.

chits I know ...tomorrow.

What exactly is the difference between Indian sugar and the sugar we get here? Are you just referring to texture Dolly?

Is this how its supposed to look? I made these this morning. They became a bit thick but I guess that's how a paratha is supposed to be. I stuffed 1 1/2 tsp of sugar in each roti. I didnt even use any achar, it tasted good by itself.

Parathas look thick (atleast thicker than what my mom and wife make) but i guess more sugar is needed or if u can make parathas thinner than 1.5 tsp is enough..

@ arag : gujrati roti and paratha are thinner than rest of india's roti and parathas. so ......



@rakhi: they are perfect ... just a little more of ghee will do just great.
