Firstly, take wheat flour, oil, and salt in a wide bowl. Mix well.
Add some water and keep kneading till you get the smooth dough. Dough should be tight and firm (not soft). Rest for 15-20 minutes.
Make balls from the dough. I was able to get six balls.
Roll the parathas to a 3-inch diameter circle using a chapati roller. Then spread little oil or ghee on it using a spoon or brush. I prefer using ghee.Sprinkle some salt, red chili powder, ajwain & wheat flour evenly. Or you can also use your finger and spread uniformly, making sure all the spices are nicely combined.
Fold from one side (from right), then the other side covering the previous fold (from left).
Again spread ghee and sprinkle some wheat flour. Again fold from top and bottom. It should look like a square.
Then roll it to a slightly thick square-shaped paratha.
Heat a tawa/skillet on medium heat and place the paratha and let it cook. Once you see bubbles, press with a laddle it will puff up, flip on to the other side drizzle some ghee or oil on top.
Lastly, Flip again and drizzle oil or ghee on the other side until they have nice golden spots on both sides.
Serve ajwain ka paratha recipe with curd, pickle, raita, ketchup, or any curry of your choice.
