Spicy paratha (गोडा मसाला पराठा)

With lockdown everyone is looking to cook with minimal ingredients or with available ingredients. At kitchenkatta 
it has always been my focus to cook with minimal, simple ingredients. So here is one more such recipe for you all.

For making paratha dough 
1. 2 cup whole wheat flour 
2. 2-3 tbsp kasuri methi
3. 1 tbsp turmeric powder 
4. 2 tbsp red chili powder 
5. 1 tbsp oil to add in dough making 
6. 1/2 tbsp jeera
7. Salt to taste
8. Water as needed 

For masala 
1. 2 tbsp Maharashtrian goda masala 
Alternatively you can use garam masala mixed with 1/2 tbsp red chili powder 
2. 2 tbsp oil 
Make thick paste of the goda masala in oil and add pinch of salt to it

Oil for cooking 

1. Mix all ingredients of paratha dough except water together in a bowl. Add little water at a time and make soft dough like roti dough. Apply 1 tbsp oil and knead the dough well. Cover and rest it for 15 minutes 
2. Divide dough in equal parts. Roll a ball in round shape and apply the goda masala paste all over

3. Fold the paratha as shown below to give a square shaped parata 

4. Gently roll the paratha keeping the shape, apply dry flour as needed while rolling 

5. Heat tava and cook the paratha on both sides applying oil

Repeat for all paratha. Chatpata spicy paratha is ready. Serve with rita of your choice or simple fresh curds.
