2 cups of whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tablespoon of oil
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 cup or enough water for preparation of dough
To the whole wheat flour add salt, oil combine it and slowly add water to form a dough.  After the dough is formed let it rest for about 30 minutes.  Divide it into 10 equal parts.

Roll the paratha dough into a flat round about 4 to 5 inches at the center of the rolled dough, place the filling bring the edges together seal and place it down with the sealed side down.  Do the same with rest of the dough and filling.
