Recipe of Green Onion Paratha

Ingredient Name Quantity Unit
Scallions (green Onion) And Or Leek - Finely Chopped 2/3 Cup
Ghee / Clarified Butter 1/3 Cup
Water 2/3 Cup
Milk 1 1/4 Cup
Chappati Flour 4 Cup
Salt 1/2 Teaspoons

Directions

Chop onions or half onion, half leeks (white part only) and put in bowl, add salt to them and set aside. Put flour in a bowl and make a well in it. Add the milk and water and knead to make a soft dough - you may have to add more flour or water to get the right consistancy..it should not be very sticky. Add the melted ghee and knead to blend it in, then add the onions and knead to mix those in. Put dough in large plastic bag and put in the refrigerator for at least an hour. To make the paratha, pull off a piece of dough about 1 1/2 inches in diameter - dust with flour and roll out into a circle. lightly coat with ghee, then cut a slit halfway through the circle of dough and roll up aside the slit into a cone shape. Stand the cone up on it's large end and press down on the top to ''squash'' the dough into a small circle. Let dough rest for about 10 minutes then roll out in a circle - try to roll it thinly. Heat butter in a non-stick tawa / frypan, put paratha in and cook one side until it puffs up, then turn over and rub it lightly with a spatula - it should puff. Rub it now and then with the spatula and turn it over until it is cooked as you like it. (The rubbing makes this flaky!) Store any unused dough in a re-sealable baggie in the refrigerator..it will keep for at least a week or more.
