Paratha (Flaky South Asian Flatbread)

[Photographs: Vicky Wasik, Video: Serious Eats Team]

Paratha is a unique South Asian flatbread, often used to scoop up curries and dip into raitha, that’s got tons of crispy layers. The special flaky quality of this bread is achieved through a double-roll procedure that fills it with countless layers of ghee, or Indian-style clarified butter, similar to the way puff pastry is layered with butter. Although making them can be a time consuming effort, the ingredients and techniques are simple enough that anyone can have freshly made flatbread at home. This recipe can also be multiplied as needed and made in advance, cooking up from frozen on demand.
