  5. Divide the dough into equal balls and roll out a portion into circle. Apply oil evenly and the tear from one end and start rolling the dough as shown in video. Flatten the ball again with a rolling pin in a circle shape.

Use extra flour for dusting to roll the dough evenly. You can use oil in place of ghee to cook the paratha.
