Warm Water for 4 Tips to Make Softer Paratha:-
Always knead the dough with lukewarm water. Add water in batches and knead with a light hand. The final dough should not be too thick or too thin. If the dough is too thick or thin, it will crack while stretching and filling.
Adding just 1 tablespoon of ghee while kneading the dough can add smoothness to the texture of the dough along with a pleasant aroma. Make sure the ghee is melted and warm. You can also mix 1 tablespoon of ghee in warm water and then use it for kneading.
Cooking the paratha on the right flame is the secret to making a soft and fluffy paratha. Make sure the tawa gets hot once and then lower the flame to medium. Putting the paratha on a very hot tawa will burn it and make it hard while putting it on a tawa that is not hot enough will make it limp.
